Timber Trees of Suriname

An Identification Guide

Ruim 50 jaar na het Bomenboek van Suriname van Lindeman, Mennega & Hekking verschijnt een Engelstalige opvolger, geschreven door Chequita Bhikhi. Alle beschrijvingen zijn nu voorzien van botanische tekeningen, kleurenfoto’s, en macroscopische houtfoto’s. In korte tijd is de informatie over zo’n 100 belangrijke boomsoorten herzien en uitgebreid met veel botanische details. Voor vrijwel alle soorten konden ook de bastkenmerken worden vermeld.

description:
This guide focuses on the identification of Surinamese trees, based on field, vegetative, floristic and wood characteristics. It includes botanical descriptions, wood descriptions, illustrations and photos of 100 Surinamese commercial timber tree species, potential timber tree species and tree species protected by Surinamese forest law. It is the first book for Suriname with more than 400 photos to illustrate characters of tree species for easy identification in the field. The guide is intended for anyone interested in learning and identifying Surinamese timber trees, particularly for the Surinamese forest organizations and different timber companies in Suriname. While this guide focuses on Suriname, many of the treated species can be found in de adjacent countries Guyana and French Guiana as well, or have a Neotropical distribution, allowing the book to be applicable across the entire region.
