Abstract : This report presents a picture guide to trees of the Gamboa Area, Republic of Panama. This guide will be used to aid personnel in planning and conducting tropic environmental tests of materiel under development for the Department of Defense, and in preparing general vegetation descriptions of test sites. This picture guide includes fifty of the most common trees in the lowland tropic forest around Gamboa, seven conspicuous grasses, and four large understory herbs. Although there are approximately 400 species of trees and shrubs in the Gamboa area, many are encountered only rarely. This guide includes those that are encountered most often.
