Review:

From the reviews for the second edition:

"This is a very important book for every botanist working in the tropics and its widespread use is to be wished for. There is ceratinly muchto improve, not only for the simple reason that this richest of all floras is still very imperfectly known and certain vegetative characters have too long been neglected by taxonomists." (Ecotropia)

“The first half of the guide is a succinct key to tropical plant families ... and the remaining 120 pp. are line drawings and color plates that illustrate the unique architecture of the families. ... The paper is of a fine quality that does not easily absorb water, a useful feature when working in the tropics. ... use it regularly while keying out specimens in the herbarium. ... Overall, if you find yourself traveling frequently through the tropics, this is an essential manual ... .”­­­ (Justin Williams, Economic Botany, Vol. 64 (1), 2010)
