Tropical And Subtropical Trees: A Worldwide Encyclopaedic Guide

In this exhaustive, lavishly illustrated A-Z encyclopaedic guide to trees from tropical and subtropical climates, Margaret Barwick describes trees by their specific attributes and profiles, such as colour, shape, texture, flowers, foliage, edible fruit, spice or timber, and those that have traditionally provided an essential element to the lives of their communities. In addition to the 1,981 colour illustrations of trees taken in the wild at the peak of their condition, and over 200 useful tree silhouettes depicting height and spread, there are 80 specially commissioned artworks of the morphology of leaves, flowers and fruit, based on terms used in the book, as well as a collection of useful quick-reference checklists.

To me there are are endless books on tropical plants and flowers but it is a bit more difficult to find a comprehensive book on trees. This book is a wonderful example providing many pictures combining full size and close up shots and citing a wealth of information on the suitable growing conditions, native environment and more. It is evident that much research and effort went into this book and I would strongly recommend it as a great reference book for tropical and sub-tropical trees.

This is a must have reference book for anyone who constantly improves home landscape, or wants to know the name of "that wonderful tree down the street". The information is concise and correct to my knowlege.

The book is not a *complete* encyclopedic listing, but it does cover many of the most common tropical horticultural species.
