Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Amyris elemifera, commonly known as Sea Torchwood, is a coastal evergreen shrub or small tree. It is found in central and southern Florida in the United States, The Bahamas, the Caribbean, and the Central American countries of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador. The resinous wood has been utilized for fuel and torches. Extracts from the roots and resin have been utilized as an expectorant via several species in the genus. In Florida, Sea Torchwood is a food source for the endangered Schaus' Swallowtail (Papilio aristodemus ponceanus). It is also known as candlewood and sea amyris, in addition to several common names. The latter portion of its scientific name means "resin bearing" in Greek.show more
