Illustrated with 500 col photographs, large thick quarto, pp xvi, 759, an excellent new copy in dustwrapper. Very heavy, weighing nearly 3.5 kilos when packed - extra postage will apply. [A work of amazing detail, which includes an excellent key to the 825 species illustrated with line drawings. Ethnoflora of the Soqotra Archipelago is an attractive, user-friendly manual to the plants of this little-known but botanically important group of islands, which is part of Yemen and situated in the Arabian Sea. Designed as a practical guide for conservationists and planners, as well as students, botanists and others interested in the plant life of the region, this comprehensive volume differs from a standard Flora in two significant ways. Firstly, it provides comprehensive information on the traditional uses of all plants found on the islands. Secondly, it contains a fully illustrated key to all plant families and species - all species on the islands are illustrated with at least one line drawing, and there are attractive colour photographs of most of the circa 300 endemic species. Additional colour plates provide a stunning visual record of the landscapes, people and culture of this unique archipelago.]
