An easy-to-use Jamaican nature guide, identifying over 400 species and containing over 160 colour photographs and 250 line drawings. The text is designed to give botanists and the more casual observer an opportunity to become familiar with the plants that grow in the Blue Mountain Range. This guide fosters a deeper understanding of the unique beauty and diversity of the mountain forest. More than fifty percent of the plants described in the book occur only in the Blue Mountain Forests of Jamaica and nowhere else in the world. The Blue Mountain Forests are currently threatened by agricultural activities, particularly on the southern slopes, and many of the unique species described in the book are threatened with extinction.
