This is the first field guide dedicated to the diverse tree species of Panama and Costa Rica. Featuring close to 500 tropical tree species, "Trees of Panama and Costa Rica" includes superb colour photos, abundant colour distribution maps, and concise descriptions of key characteristics, making this guide readily accessible to botanists, biologists, and casual nature lovers alike. The invaluable introductory chapters discuss tree diversity in Central America and the basics of tree identification.
Family and species accounts are treated alphabetically and describe family size, number of genera and species, floral characteristics, and relative abundance. Colour distribution maps supplement the useful species descriptions, and facing-page photographic plates detail bark, leaf, flower, or fruit of the species featured. Helpful appendices contain a full glossary, a comprehensive guide to leaf forms, and a list of families not covered. The only tree guide to cover both Panama and Costa Rica together. This title covers almost 500 species; 438 high-resolution colour photos; 480 colour distribution maps; and, two general maps. It includes concise and jargon-free descriptions of key characteristics for every species. Full glossary and guide to leaf forms are included. 552 pages.
