About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Some 1500 species of tree are known to occur in Costa Rica, accounting for 15% of the country's total flora, yet only 300 species have been evaluated for potential use. This is a field guide to neotropical tree species used for timber, and now endangered in Costa Rica. It includes illustrations of diagnostic features, as well as a description of uses and a summary of status.
