With about 150 species, Jatropha is a diverse woody group in the Euphorbiaceae, considered the most primitive of the family. Diversity of the genus is best reflected in the radically different classifications of the past as well as those of modern taxonomists. This monograph is a fully illustrated comprehensive treatment of the neotropical species of Jatropha, with the basis of classification being results of previously published studies of morphological, anatomical, phenetic, and phylogenetic analyses as well as some recent work. Also included are geographical distributions and medicinal and other uses.
