Comments: From Books in Print "Almost ninety percent of Hawai'i's native plants are found nowhere else in the world. Here is a revised and enlarged edition of a favorite reference for these and other plants (indigenous and pre-contact) that comprise some of the world's most unique ecosystems. In a series of essays, the author weaves cultural and biological, historical and geographic, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of Hawaiian ecology into non-technical accounts of 32 plants important to early Hawaiians."--BOOK JACKET.
