A major contribution to the field botany literature, this is the first comprehensive generic account of the Peruvian tree flora, one of the richest in the world. The book will be an essential guide for students, botanists, foresters and tourists. Although designed for Peru, it will also be valuable in other Andean countries, such as Ecuador and Bolivia, which share many of the same tree species.

The contents include an account of the forests of Peru, an illustrated glossary of technical terms, identification keys, descriptions of 140 families and 980 genera, up to date literature references and information on distribution, ecology and uses of 1500 of the more common species. The text is accompanied by over 900 (yes, 900!) fine, technically accurate line-drawings and coloured plates by Rosemary Wise, one of the foremost botanical illustrators, and by nearly 200 colour photographs.
