A MUST HAVE TITLE!
Ricardo Kriebel Haehner
This guide includes 25 genera and 99 native
species (plus one that could become naturalized) of Gesneriaceae from Costa
Rica, one of the most showy flowering plant families in the neotropics. Each
species includes a description, distribution, phenological notes and diagnostic
remarks and are illustrated with color photographs. Furthermore, the
introductory section includes notes on their taxonomic and natural histories
(e.g., pollination, dispersal, medicinal uses). Dichotomous keys for their
identification are included at the end.
Because of the similarities of
species with Nicaragua and Panama, this field guide will be useful for
identifying most species in these countries as well.
