Jamaica as a Centre for Botanical Research in the Tropics

Article metrics

Abstract

NO botanist should be content until he has visited some tropical area, and studied its flora on the spot. The tropical region most readily accessible from Great Britain lies in the West Indies; and as Jamaica now offers special facilities at the Cinchona station, recently leased by the Jamaican Government to a committee of the British Association, the time is opportune for explaining the advantages it can provide.
