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. Over 700 cultivated species are also described and there is a special section on local medicinal plants, both cultivated and wild.
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.

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.
