This lavishly illustrated guide covers the cultivated and wild edible plant species of Vanuatu. Over 200 species grown for their tubers or roots, woody species and creepers that provide fruits or seeds, and herbaceous species, from sugarcane to mint, are quoted or described in short sheets of essential facts. The guide was designed to familiarize those in the West with the food plants used in Oceania and tell the Oceanians about the origin and use of introduced plants, and is accessible to a wide readership. An accompagnying CD-ROM provides more detailed information of interest for specialists.
