xiv,370 pp, 24x15cm, "The Galapagos are home to a wide-ranging assortment of unusual plants and animals and became famous as the site of Darwin's research leading to his theory of evolution and natural selection. Based on the author's 16 years of fieldwork, this volume is an in-depth guide to the plant life of the area. Intended as a resource for tourists, natural history enthusiasts and professionals, the book: introduces the botanical history of the islands and their varied ecological zones; allows easy identification of 436 flowering plants (77 families, 193 genera and 389 species); covers endemic plants found exclusively on the island, as well as native plants which grow on the Galapagos and elsewhere, and exotic plants present as a result of human actions; offers thorough accounts of the plants which give the scientific, common and family names, range, islands inhabited, description and additional notes of interest; is illustrated with 266 colour photographs of flowering plants and 117 of plant pollinators, vegetation zones, non-flowering plants, and the islands themselves; organizes species by form, leaf arrangement and flower colour and includes descriptive plant drawings to aid identification; and provides a map of the Galapagos and a list of plants likely to be seen at popular tourist sites" - Publisher's description.
