The Handbook of Asclepiads of Thailand displays the rich and, until recently, rather poorly known pantropical asclepiadaceous flora, commonly known as the milkweed family. These plants used to be in their own family, Asclepiadaceae, but after taxonomic revisions under the framework of APG III they are now treated as a subfamily (subfamily Asclepiadoideae) in the Apocynaceae.
The book contains complete identification keys. The general keys direct the reader to the appropriate chapter, where detailed descriptions and additional keys narrow the choices for the plant's identity. Over 42 genera and 182 species of asclepiads are described in detail and richly illustrated with magnificent colour photographs and line drawings. Distilled from the authors' decades of experience, this handbook is the most comprehensive and thoroughly illustrated account of Thai asclepiads ever. Botanists, students, teachers, hobbyists and anyone interested in nature and the extraordinary beauty of asclepiads will find this handbook indispensable for study and reference.
