Plants in Tropical Cities

The definitive guide for Plants in Singapore and the neighbouring countries.

With close to 2800 plants featured, we hope that this book will help everyone to appreciate all the plants around us in our daily lives. Use our Plants in Tropical Cities book to find tropical plant names and pictures. Nineteenth palettes or likely scenarios/situations (e.g. indoor plants, roadside plants, green roofs, green walls, epiphytic plants, aquatic plants, seashore planting, school gardens, mangroves, plants to attract butterflies, fragrant plants) were prepared that will be helpful for anyone embarking on any plant-related development projects or simply as a hobby. Not forgetting the scientific researchers and the graduate students for their plant identification needs, we put in as many botanical details as possible for each species, within the 1000 page limit! Additionally, an Index of Genus names for quick reference is also included at the back of the book.

The "A to Z" listing of plants gave us a chance to feature 26 photos, each of which is the representative" for each alphabet (based on the scientific name). Whenever possible, native species (to our Malesian region) and various plant functional groups (e.g. aquatic plants, epiphytes, mangroves, climbers) were featured throughout the book in our bid to promote better understanding of plant adaptations and also to protect our unique regional plant biodiversity.
