View larger image of 'Mountain Plants of Venezuela:  The Coastal Range:  The Andes and the Tepuis:  Bromeliads'Oliva-Esteve -  Mountain Plants of Venezuela: The Coastal Range: The Andes and the Tepuis: Bromeliads
A large (and heavy!) book this illustrates plants and habitats which we don’t often see in books. Divided in to four sections, coastal range, Andes, Tepuis (Guayana) and slightly puzzlingly Bromeliads and introductory section describes the various regions. Primarily a colour photo album, with good sized well reproduced pictures, there are also descriptions and some other interesting information. Quite a remarkable and different book. 2006 12 ½ x 9 ½ 335 pages
