Landscape Ecological Vegetation Map of Bonaire (Southern Caribbean)

The results of a intensive ecological survey of Bonaire from December of 1998 through March of 1999, this book includes detailed descriptions of the terrain, vegetation, and species composition of one of the world s foremost ecological treasures. The authors created a landscape-based vegetation map to quantify their findings: with each unit delineated and characterized on the basis of landscape-forming factors, such as geology, geomorphology, soil characteristics, and vegetation. It will be greatly appreciated by fellow researchers and students in the field.
