About this book

To remedy the lack of plants they needed, the Polynesians employed a strategy of transporting these plants (called canoe plants) with them in their voyaging canoes. Around 60 of the canoe plants were present in the first area of Polynesia settled. This guide represents information gathered from decades of field expeditions by the author, and includes an introduction to the people of Polynesia.
