Useful pocket guide with photos and drawings June 8 2008
By linda's books - Published on
Format: Paperback
Using much of the same material and the same format at their Tropical Plants of Southeast Asia, Elisabeth Chan and Luca Invernizzi Tettoni present about 60 of the most common tropical plants. They are grouped into commonly seen plants, economically important plants, especially beautiful plants, and oddities. For each, there are one or two photos or drawings, the botanical family, occurence, description, and notes of interest. A good start to a collection of references, this is recommended as a traveler's first guide. For more information on these and other tropical plants, see Ornamental Plants & Flowers of Tropical Mexico.
A guide that is too basic March 7 2015
By HJ VENTER - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Probably a useful enough pocket guide for those that know absolutely nothing, however possibly not even then. This publication is really basic and is hardly worth the effort.
