Some Common Trees of Jamaica

This book is compiled primarily of articles written by members of the Education Subcommittee of the Natural History Society of Jamaica, and published in the Children’s Own Newspaper during the 1993-1994 school year. Each article is somewhat unique in its approach as the styles of the various authors have been retained as much as possible.
