Tropical Plants of Costa Rica: A Guide to Native and Exotic Flora Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beautifully illustrated with more than 540 full-color photographs, this guide to the native and exotic flora in Costa Rica is an indispensable resource for naturalists, students, and researchers, as well as both experienced and first-time visitors to Costa Rica and the American tropics.

Book News Annotation:

In this renamed reprint of A Guide to Tropical Plants of Costa Rica (Zona Tropical, 2005), a Monteverde botanist introduces ecotourists and others to the flora of this country's diverse habitats. Organized into the categories of "painted" treetops, other common trees, roadside/garden ornamentals, fruits and crops, living fences and reforestration, special habitats, typical tropical groups, and conspicuous grasses, Zuchowski presents species accounts for some 400 plants with comments on their ethnobotanical and other uses. The guide includes photos by a noted botanical photographer, a map, glossary, and list of featured species by family. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
