Whistler, Arthur W.

Information on over 140 species includes the scientific, Samoan and English names, the botanical family to which the plant belongs, and the range of the species. This is followed by the habitat, ethnobotanical uses in Samoa, and a complete botanical description. Colour photographs of each tree assists in the identification. A table is provided that shows the island distribution of each of the species within the Samoa archipelago. Designed to be of use to foresters, botanists, naturalists, teachers, students, or just nature lovers who visit the archipelago. It is also a very useful guide to the trees of Tonga, Niue, and the Cook Islands, since most of the species covered also occur in these archipelagos and islands. Also included are six tree species that are new to science (two of them from Tonga).
