Flora of the Galapagos Islands

Ira L.Wiggins and Duncan M.Porter (1971)

With contributions by 28 specialists. The first complete flora, treating every vascular plant known to appear in the archipelago. The authors deal with the ferns, fern-allies and angiosperms (there are no gymnosperms on the islands) of all 642 species (228 are endemic), of which 395 are illustrated. This flora follows the classical lines with references, synonymy, extensive morphologic descriptions, illustrations, brief notes on habitat, including geographical distribution information (both in text and distribution maps). 1,000 b/w line drawings illustrate some 395 taxa--at least one species in every genus considered. 96 color photos, identifying keys to all taxa. The endpapers carry a nicely executed detailed map of the archipelago and the special color section contains 96 photographs of plants, animals, and landscapes. 1,019 pages, 8-1/2" x 11". Hardbound, with color dustjacket. Out of print for over 10 years, we found a few copies. Normally retails for $150.00. OUR SPECIAL REDUCED PRICE IS ONLY...........$90.00
