About this book

The definitive handbook, representing the work of 150 botanists and covering more than 280 families of plants known to occur in the Western Hemisphere between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. The text describes each family's features, diversity of genera and species, distribution, habitat, classification, botany, natural history, and economic uses. Numerous illustrations portray flora that range from the deserts of Mexico and the coasts of Central America to the vast lowland rainforests of Amazonia and the cloud forests of the Andes.

From a review in TAXON 54 (1):

"Magnificent and massive are appropriate words to describe this exemplary and inexpensive production. Some 150 botanists treat 286 neotropical families of angiosperms in nearly 500 pages... a superb reference book."
