Product Description

Few people, including Filipinos themselves, know that the Philippines is one of the world's most biodiverse countries. Aside from a wide array of animal species, the country happens to be home to over 3,500 endemic plant species and some 26 endemic genera. Of these, more than 3,000 are angiosperms or flowering plants, the largest and most diverse group of organisms in the plant kingdom. In fact, the Philippines ranks fifth in the world in terms of the number of plant species, playing host to five percent of the world's flora.
More plants remain undiscovered since many areas and forests in the country have yet to be fully explored.
Packed with colorful graphic illustrations and engaging activities, A Visual Guide to Philippine Flora, is a comprehensive and updated guide to the country's notable plant species. Apart from distribution, morphology, and other useful information such as edibility, medicinal and cultural value, and other economic uses, the book also highlights conservation efforts to preserve and protect our beautiful flora.
