This beautifully illustrated 400 page field guide is a comprehensive guide with photographs, identification keys and descriptions of nearly 500 species of plants, mainly native species, that adorn our countryside and provide a habitat for wildlife. It is intended for all who seeks to know more about beautiful tropical plants and their ecosystems.
We will be organising field trips and running courses on plant identification using this guide as a basis.
The Field Guide is based on extensive surveys of Antigua & Barbuda by the authors. It includes over 1000 photographs taken in Antigua and Barbuda by the authors. Whilst every Caribbean island has it’s own distinct flora, plant lovers will find this guide of application in nearby Caribbean islands.
Obtainable from the EAG Office, the Museum and also from Best of Books, Hotels and book and gift shops.
