Abstract: This work is based on specimens of some 1,200 species of Jamaican plants received by Linnaeus from Patrick Browne (1720-1790) and information on some 800 species collected by Hans Sloane (1660-1753). Linnaeus also used information in Browne's A civil and natural history of Jamaica (London, 1756) and in Sloane's A voyage to the islands Madeira... and Jamaica (London, 1707-1725).
