Bwa yo: important trees of Haiti by Joel Timyan 1996 418 pp ISBN 0 9645449 0 3
Trees and their forest habitats have played a major rote in creating a fertile environment in Haiti. However, as population growth and economic development expand, the makeup of the tree population has been altered considerably, shifting towards those species that supply the daily needs of Haitians and their lifestyles. All other species are at risk, including a significant number found only in Haiti or elsewhere on the island of Hispaniola. Bwa yo: important trees of Haiti includes the results of over a decade of, scientific and technical tree research conducted in Haiti. The book should provide a useful reference book to all those concerned with the critical role of trees in agricultural production and environmental management in Haiti in particular. However, many of the tree species covered occur widely throughout the tropics and the data would be of interest to all those interested in the cultivation of trees and their incorporation into farming systems.
