Welcome to the Rapid Color Guides page. Whether taken to the field or used only on a computer screen, such guides fill a gap in the published material available to identify live species growing in tropical lands. Most of these guides are designed for use in the field, and, after free downloading, all can be printed out from the high-quality PDF files to make two-sided plastic coated sheets. If you need for us to print, laminate, and ship guides to you, please see: (ordering info). If you want us to develop a new guide for you (if you already have photos of identified species), or if you have designed your own guide and want to post it on this page, please see About Making Guides or contact us at: rfoster@fieldmuseum.org or rrc@fieldmuseum.org.

Below is a list of the guides currently available, and the lists are sortable on the screen by guide number, country/region, title, author, and subject matter. After clicking on a title below, you will see a low-resolution sample page and links for viewing or downloading the guide. Those with numbers beginning 400 are simply posted on this site and entirely the responsibility of the authors.
