Through short descriptions and detailed photographs taken during three years of fieldwork, Aquatic Plants of the Colombian Orinoquia presents almost three hundred species of aquatic plants from the lower watershed of the Colombian Orinoco. The book is written in a language that despite including scientific rigor is accessible to the general public. It comprises the most comprehensive list of aquatic plants gathered from the Colombian Orinoco. The authors also classified these specimens in a herbarium. One of the purposes of this book is to inspire and instruct readers, regardless of whether they are sitting reading in their houses, studying at university, working in a herbarium, or walking through the majestic floodplains of the Colombian Orinoco.
