Trees of Belize
I am excited to inform you of my recently published book – ‘Trees of Belize’ - which I believe would be of considerable interest to yourself and anyone with an interest in and affection for Belize.
I have an MSc in Forestry from the University of Oxford, and researched and wrote this book during a four year stint of living/working out in Orange Walk in northern Belize. This edition is currently on sale in-country through the Added Touch wholesalers, Belize Zoo, Audubon Society and many other tourist outlets.
However, ‘Trees of Belize’ is also now available on www.amazon.com ($20.99) and I’d be delighted if you would consider purchasing a copy!
With kind regards,
Trees of Belize (2013), second edition. Kate L. Harris. Bay Cedar Publishing, Cheltenham UK. 122pp. ISBN: 978-0-9927582-0-2
“With more than 750 native, and not-so-native tree species prevalent throughout the forests, savannas and cayes of Belize, their correct identification can be madly exasperating - each palm virtually indistinguishable from the next. From allspice to ziricote, this book describes seventy of Belize's most significant and more commonly-encountered species - providing the reader with a wealth of information as to their incredible properties, traditional uses, and Mayan folklore. Thoughtfully written and beautifully photographed, Trees of Belize provides an enjoyable insight into the diversity and splendour of Belize's tropical flora. This is a comprehensive and concise guide - and perfect for natural history enthusiasts, tourists, and locals alike.”
