About this book

Language: English

PROTA 7 deals with the timbers of Tropical Africa. Because the group is very large, it has been subdivided into 2 volumes. In PROTA 7(1) 511 ‘primary use’ timbers, belonging to a selection of 25 botanical families, were described in 280 review articles (2008). This volume, PROTA 7(2), describes 693 ‘primary use’ timbers in 314 review articles. All articles are illustrated with a geographic distribution map and many with a line drawing of the habit.

Can be purchased with or without a CD-ROM, which allows for easy searching through the texts and contains in addition numerous photographs (a.o. on wood anatomy).
