About this book

The Bahamas archipelago consists of almost 700 islands situated adjacent to the Gulf Stream and surrounded by the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The sub-tropical to tropical climate provides an ideal growing environment for a huge variety of both common and exotic non-flowering and flowering types of trees. This is a practical, illustrated guide to the trees of the islands featuring over 400 species. Each species is illustrated with both a colour photograph and line illustration of its leaves, and text contains information on common names, distribution, form and habitat, leaves, flowers and fruit.

Map of the Bahama islands; list of tree species by family group; natural history and geology; forest types and plant communities; keys to families - palms, pines and pine-like - simple alternate leaves - simple opposite leaves - compound alternate leaves - compound opposite leaves; tree species and description.
