About this book

Language: English

Southern Thailand has one of the richest tree floras in the world and contains 75% off all native trees found in Thailand. This series will cover 2400 species over three volumes, including over 90% of wild trees known from the region. Two thirds of all these species are described in detail and fully illustrated with 1200 original drawings and over 7000 photographs over the three volumes, which capture the astonishing beauty of these plants, most of which have never been seen in print. The text is authoritative and up-to-date but written in non-technical language to appeal to amateur botanists as well as professionals. A second section of 150 pages is devoted to synonyms, references, distribution and uses. This unique book is the most complete guide ever published to the flora of this fascinating region and is an essential reference for anyone interested in the natural history of the peninsula.
