A Pictorial Flora

Welcome to the Website!

This website, designed for mobile phones, is based on many years of field work on this spectacular small island and reveals an astonishing plant biodiversity of over 1300 wild flowering plant species and 150 species of ferns squeezed into a rugged 620 square kilometers

The aim of the web site is to enable Saint Lucians to identify and correctly name plants that they find. It is essentially a field guide and not intended to take the place of herbarium specimens which are essential for detailed examination. Hopefully people with an interest in Caribbean botany in general might also find the site useful.

Please feel free to contact me by email with any question, comments and corrections! However please note that requests for the export of plant material of any sort must be addressed to the Department of Forestry as must be any proposed collection visits. Virtually all images are my own. Please contact me if you would like to use any of them. I often have larger file sizes as well.

The photo albums were made using Jalbum's Mimimal Skin
