This work includes an account of the forests, an illustrated glossary of technical terms, identification keys, descriptions of 140 families & 980 genera, and information on distribution, ecology and uses of 1500 of the more common species. Although designed for Peru, it will also be useful for visitors to other Andean countries such as Ecuador and Bolivia, which share many of the same species.)
