A Field Guide to Tropical Plants of Asia is an indispensable companion for the traveler, backpacker, plant hobbyist, or botanist interested in learning about tropical plants, whether studying them in Indonesian rain forests or the glass houses of an American botanical garden. Using his own experience as a New Jersey native trying to familiarize himself with the local Thai flora, Engel has organized this book for ultimate ease of use. More than 300 color photos - both close-ups and habitat shots - accompany the listings and provide a key piece of the identification process.
