Common trees of Yasuni. A guide for identifying the common trees of the Ecuadorian Amazon. 2016. ca. 250 col. pls. Many line - drawings. Distrib. maps. 619 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
This book is destined to be a classic of tropical botany, as much for the very high quality of the production as for the enormous need that exists for guides of this kind in terms of the megadiverse flora of Amazonia. It is also worth mentioning one aspect that sets this manuscript above many others of this kind: the inclusion of ecological and cultural information gathered in the field with the indigenous inhabitants of the area. The result is a rich blend of knowledge from two worlds: of western science and the the centuries - long coexistence of the Amazonian people with their environment. - Contents (main headings): Foreword/ Prologue/ Introduction (Background, Methods, etc.)/ General Illustrated Key/ Description of species (Simple leaves, Compound leaves, Palms)/ Illustrated Glossary/ Dichotomous Key/ References/ Indices (Scientific names, Common names in Spanish, Common names in Huao - tededo (trees), Common names in Huao - tededo (leaves and fruits), Common Names in Other Indigenous Languages).
