About this book

In the past, plants in Kuwait were valued only as forage and fodder and for subsistence level farming. Recent unrest in the region has caused extensive damage to many of Kuwait's plants and a good review of information on them became necessary. The book contains information on all the dicotyledonous plants (except the Compositae) known to grow in Kuwait. The distribution of the 118 species covered is illustrated on maps of Kuwait and the Middle East.
