Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0894991868, Paperback)

This is a report on plants that show promise for improving the quality of life in tropical areas. Because the countries in this zone contain most of the world's low-income populations this report is addressed to those government administrators, technical assistance personnel, and researchers in agriculture, nutrtion and related disciplines who are concerned with helping developing countries achieve a more efficient and balanced exploitation of their biological resources.

The 36 plants described here were selected from among 400 nominated by plant scientists around the world. (To keep the project to manageable size, medicinal plants and timber species were excluded.)
