About this book

The majority of this work is devoted to a catalogue (with descriptions and illustrations) of sea-beans, tropical seeds and fruits that are distributed by river and ocean currents to shires around the world. Entries in the catalogue provide information on buoyancy, planting viability, and common carrier currents. Preceding chapters include information on the history of the sea-bean as cultural artifact and general transport currents and collecting beaches.
