附註 "This book is for the person who lives in the tropics or subtropics and is interested in native plants, who wants to know about plants that are useful, who loves to watch plants grow, and who is willing to work with them. Such a person might ask questions like, Where will they grow? How do I grow them? Are they good to eat? How are they used? What are their names? These questions and more are answered here."--Foreword: A treasure trove for people who like plants
"The 80 Pacific island traditional tree species described in this book are representative of the many tropical trees that have had a long relationship with local people. These trees have become "traditional" by virtue of being intertwined with the culture and the day-to-day lives of indigenous peoples, for whom they provide edible fruits, nuts, leaves, and timber and wood for numerous other valuable products of everyday importance."--Foreword: Traditional trees-a key to well-being and prosperity
