Format: Hardcover
Flora of the Venezuelan Guayana, Volume 1

This volume commences publication of a multivolume flora that is the first full scientific account of the plants of a botanically rich and geologically ancient part of northern South America, the Venezuelan Guayana. This area is dominated by massive table mountains, tepuis, that tower over surrounding rain forest and savannas and provide a wealth of habitats for nearly 10,000 species of vascular plants.

Volume 1 is a general introduction to the southeastern half of Venezuela that encompasses the flora area, with chapters on geography, history of botanical exploration, vegetation types, endemism, and conservation. Keys to the families of seed plants are also provided. Volume 2 begins the alphabetical sequence of family treatments, first within the ferns and their allies, then followed by the initial 11 families of seed plants. Keys, descriptions, and illustrations of more than half the species treated - a feature rarely found in floras of even more familiar areas - make this work an enduring reference that will be useful far beyond the borders of the region now carefully documented. Nine volumes are anticipated for publication of the complete flora.

More than 180 botanists from around the world have collaborated on this project, which is based at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
