Krings, Alexander and Richard R. Braham

An Illustrated Guide to the Tendrillate Climbers of Cost Rican Mountains. 2005. illustr. 190 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
Climbers, such as lianas and vines, are important constituents of tropical forests and perhaps the single most important physiognomic characteristic differentiating tropical from temperate forests, occurring on nearly 50% of forest trees in Central and South America. Despite their widespread nutritional and medicinal use, lianas remain poorly understood ecologically. This book offers comprehensive coverage of all of the tendrillate lianas of Costa Rica and most of the tendrillate lianas of Central America. It contains excellent keys to families and separate keys to genera and species, current nomenclature and lists of synonymy when other scientific names have been published or used informally. Each species is illustrated by the author's hand-drawn line art.
