Description

Dictionary of South American Trees provides a single-source reference for botanists, biologists, ecologists, and climatologists on the many native trees in South America. The index lets readers find a tree in four languages, by its common name, or abbreviation, followed by taxonomy that includes common uses for each part of the tree.

Using this information, scientists and students can identify and classify plants, their growth structure and environment, the uses of their products, and alternative options with similar characteristics.

"The second volume in the set, this dictionary focuses on native trees in South America, presented in alphabetical order by Latin name. It excludes fossil and more recently extinct taxa, hybrids, and cultivars. Each generic entry includes the family, synonyms of the Latin name, and English, French, Spanish, trade, and other names. Infrageneric entries also include the distribution, height, type of foliage, ecological characteristics, and main uses."--ProtoView.com,February 2014
