About this book

This second edition is in a smaller format than the first, with additional photos and a new section on the Osa Peninsula. More than 800 photographs, taken in the field, show entire plants and closer views of flowers, fruits, and seeds. Pen-and-ink drawings depict botanical details. The text covers identifying characteristics, natural history, chemical properties, economic importance, medicinal uses, conservation, ethnobotany, and ecology.

A previous edition of this book was published under the title A Guide to Tropical Plants of Costa Rica (2005). The taxonomy has been updated for this new edition.
