Tropical Trees Of Florida And The Virgin Islands: A Guide To Identification, Characteristics And Uses

Covering over 90 species and with over 500 color photographs, this book has been long awaited by both tree professionals and anyone who wants to identify a tree in the Virgin Islands and south Florida.Rare for field guides, this user-friendly book provides for all the species the same categories of complete text: form, leaves and bark, flowers, fruits, habitat, and uses. Also for each species there are photos of the whole tree, bark, leaves, flowers, and fruit.The organization of the book makes it easy to identify a tree. The trees are divided into sections primarily based on how the leaves are arranged on the twig. So you can look at a twig and decide which section of the book in which you should search for it.In addition to the 90 main species covered completely, many more that somehow relate to the main species are mentioned. Though most of the trees are native, many exotics that have been introduced are also included, as many of them are now widespread, particularly in south Florida.

I purchased this book to better acquaint myself with Tropical Trees.This is and will be a good reference guide.

A good guide for someone on vacation, interested in the tree's they are most likely to see, very easy to use -but- list of tree's is nowhere near complete, seriously lacking Florida native palms & other native tree's.
