About this book

Based on five expeditions to the area by Kew and its Indonesian collaborators, and incorporating records from previous expeditions, A Guide to the Subalpine and Alpine Flora of Mount Jaya is a comprehensive record of the high elevation flora of the tallest mountain in South-East Asia, and an indispensable resource for everyone with an interest in the ecological management of New Guinea and the Lorentz World Heritage Area in particular.

Includes concise descriptions of all species of flowering plants, ferns and gymnosperms growing above 2,800 metres, with notes on their ecology, distribution and conservation status.
