Dictionary of Trees, Volume 2: South America

Nomenclature, Taxonomy and Ecology

Dictionary of South American Trees provides a single-source reference for botanists, biologists, ecologists, and climatologists on the many native trees in South America. The index lets readers find a tree in four languages, by its common name, or abbreviation, followed by taxonomy that includes common uses for each part of the tree.

Using this information, scientists and students can identify and classify plants, their growth structure and environment, the uses of their products, and alternative options with similar characteristics.

Audience

Scientists and advanced students in forestry, forest management and conservation, arboriculture, botanists, foresters, silviculturists, dendrologists
