dc.description.abstract The International Biological Material Research Center (IBMRC) at the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology (KRIBB) is working to create a global network for exploration, conservation and considerate use of the global biological resources. Sponsored by the Ministry of Science ICT and Future Planning of the Republic of Korea, our aim is to unveil the hidden potential of biological resources of the world. As of now, four overseas regional biological resource centers, in China, Costa Rica, Indonesia and Vietnam are functional to bring off our goal to a successful conclusion. Korea-Costa Rica Biodiversity Research Center (KCBRC) was established as an outcome of the successful collaboration between KRIBB and Instituto Nacional de Biodiversidad (INBio) to survey the Costa Rican bio resources. Since 2008, KCBRC is devoted to explore potential use of Costa Rican wild plants that could be developed into propitious pharmaceuticals, neutraceuticals etc. Costa Rica geographical position is one of feature responsible for its high biological diversity. Due to that Costa Rican government has designated about 25 % of its natural areas as national parks and other categories to preserve the valuable biological resources. However, there are still many areas remaining which need to be surveyed, studied and protected. To archive our collaboration on biodiversity research, we are presenting this book “Plants of Costa Rica: Photographic Field Guide, Vol. 2” this document illustrates 300 species in 87 families of Costa Rican wild plants. Among the species included, about 12 of them are endemic and most of those left at genera level (p.e. Masannona sp., Myrcia paulii-jonesii) are possible new species. es_CR
