Common Medicinal Plants of Portland, Jamaica has been designed as a field book for the identification of some of the most common medicinal plants encountered in Jamaica. It is based on the traditional knowledge of collaborating Maroon herbalists who have been cultural practitioners for more than 25 years.

This guide includes photos and illustrations of 47 common species along with plant descriptions, traditional medicinal uses and other pertinent information. Most of the plants are widespread species that may be found throughout the many parts of the tropics, so this book will be useful throughout the Caribbean region and other tropical landscapes.
