This volume is a detailed study of the 27 species of Lecythidaceae (Brazil Nut family) found in the vicinity of Saül, French Guiana---an area proposed for preservation as a biological reserve. A botanically undisturbed portion of the proposed 133,600 hectare reserve of Saül, called La Fumée Mountain was studied in most detail. In addition to keys and descriptions of the species of Lecythidaceae found, the volume includes anatomical, morphological, phenological, and pollination biology examinations of these species and an extensive ecological description of La Fumée Mountain.
