Description


Manual de Plantas de Costa Rica is a concise, illustrated guide to all of the species of native, naturalized and commercially cultivated vascular plants of this Central American country, which lies between Nicaragua and Panama and is thus centered in isthmian Central America—a biogeographical funnel between South and North America, densely rich in species and geological history. The Manual is the first comprehensive Spanish-language account of the Costa Rican flora. Besides brief formal descriptions and informal notes about each of a total of 40 families, 190 genera, and 1136 species of seed plants, this identification manual contains keys to all the gymnosperm and monocot families treated in the series, as well as to the genera and species included within this volume.
