A thorough study of the native and naturalized pteridophytes, dicotyledons, and monocotyledons of St. John, one of the islands of the geologically distinct Puerto Rican bank. Included are an overview of the geology, climate, vegetation, flora and floristic affinities, and botanical history of St. John. Treatments of each family include keys and descriptions to the species, and are considered applicable to the flora of the Virgin Islands as a whole and to the adjacent dry districts of Puerto Rico as well. Numerous illustrations and a glossary of technical terms are intended to make this flora useful for both amateurs and students of West Indian flora. Including Acevedo-Rodriguez, 21 botanists contributed to this volume.
