Identification of Tropical Woody Plants in the Absence of Flowers - A Field Guide, 2nd Ed.
This revised and extended second edition of "Identification of tropical woody plants" is a
concise representation of vegetative characters of woody taxa. It presents a unique
identification system, permitting recognition of plant families in all seasons by means
of morphological and macroanatomical features which are easily observable, permanent,
and which provide a great deal of taxonomic information. The identification system has been
designed in the form of a dichotomous key, which is illustrated with figures of woody plants
showing their architecture and the morphological characters of barks, branches and leaves.
The book has been revised according to the latest molecular biological findings in taxonomy.
Additional families are included, as well as representative examples on color plates.
A new key for the main groups of euphorbiacean genera has been included. This field guide
will be an essential companion to botanists and ecologists.
