About this book

Language: French

PROTA 7 deals with the timbers of Tropical Africa. Because the group is very large, it will be subdivided into 2 volumes. In PROTA 7(1), 511 'Primary use' timbers belonging to a selection of 25 botanical families, are described in 280 review articles. Many of the articles are illustrated with a geographic distribution map and 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).
