The Kew Tropical Plant Families Identification Handbook is an authoritative guide to the commonly encountered and ecologically important plants of the tropics. Written by experts at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, this handbook is based on Kew’s popular Tropical Plant Identification course, which uses classical morphology, as well as more simple “spot” characteristics, to teach plant identification.

This fully updated second edition adds seventeen new family and subfamily descriptions and includes updated research throughout. Each of the one hundred families is described in detail and richly illustrated with photographs that show important identification characteristics. The book’s emphasis on images and the foundations of identification means that both specialists and nonspecialists alike will be able to use this guide.

The Kew Tropical Plant Families Identification Handbook is a portable, easy-to-use resource, perfect for tropical botanists as well as students and conservation professionals.
