This authoritative and scholarly treatise on the potatoes of Bolivia provides a definitive guide to the rich diversity and taxonomy of this important group of plants. The volume represents the culmination of a lifetime's study of these potatoes by Carlos Ochoa, and is published in collaboration with the International Potato Center in Lima, Peru. As such, it represents a definitive guide to these potatoes and is the first to be prepared under the auspices of a South American botanist. The text is abundantly illustrated throughout with clear line drawings, photographs and many specially commissioned water colors. Further volumes are planned on other South American potatoes.
