A photographic book, with Spanish text, illustrating flowering plant diversity in the montane forests of northern Peru.
Over 190 species from 76 different families are illustrated with full-page colour photographs of habitats, plant habit and detailed close-ups of flower and/or fruits. Initial chapters provide biodiversity data for seven departments in northwestern Peru. Discussion of each genus contains information on plant form, habitat preferences, recorded elevations, Peruvian departmental and extra-Peruvian geographic distributions, and common names when available.
In addition, an annotated floristic checklist of the montane forests containing ca. 1500 species of ferns, gymnosperms, and angiosperms represented by vouchers is presented as an appendix.
