The publication documents critical information on over 300 trees endemic to Jamaica, that is, about 10 per cent of Jamaica's flowering plants. The project to research, do fieldwork and produce this book was executed by the Botany Department of the NHMJ funded by the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica to the tune of $5 million. The project was administered by the Natural History Society of Jamaica.
