The three islands comprising the Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac) support 415 native taxa in a land area little over 100 square miles, 29 of which are uniquely Caymanian. This full-color edition of Flora of the Cayman Islands is a total revision of George R. Proctor’s classic first edition. Accessible and informative, this field guide satisfies the needs of the professional botanist, while providing the non-expert and eco-tourist with an attractive introduction to the unique endemic flora of the Cayman Islands.
