About this book

Revised edition with updated nomenclature and colour plates. A new key for the main groups of euphorbiacean genera has also been included.
Innovative and invaluable field guide which presents a new identification system permitting recognition of tropical rain forest plant families in all seasons by means of morphological and macroanatomical features which are easily observable, permanent and which provide a great deal of taxonomic information. The identification system has been designed in the form of a well illustrated dichotomous key showing the morphological features of the barks, branches and leaves.
`This will be an essential companion to botanists and ecologists because it can be used in all seasons. Anyone carrying out botanical inventory will find this an invaluable tool.', Sir Ghillean Prance, Director, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Media reviews
This is a very important book for every botanist working in the tropics and its widespread use is to be wished for. There is ceratinly muchto improve, not only for the simple reason that this richest of all floras is still very imperfectly known and certain vegetative characters have too long been neglected by taxonomists.
