The Araceae family of tropical plants includes 118 genera and 3,800 species—making it the thirteenth richest family in the world—and is notable for its varied floral morphology (bi- or unisexual fertile flowers as well as sterile flowers), habit (aquatic plants, geophytes, vines, and epiphytes), modes of pollination, and unusual physiology. This French-language book explores the 21 genera and 122 species of Araceae found in French Guiana, covering their growth patterns, floral morphology, thermogenesis, pollination, and relationships with non-pollinating animals, as well as their ethnobotanical uses and systematics. The book also features a concise identification key for Guiana’s genera and species that includes a brief description of each species.
