About this book

A Garden Guide to Native Plants of Coastal East Africa outlines how and what to plant in order to rejuvenate the coastal East African ecosystem through gardens, school yards, roadways, and public places. The authors have selected some 60 indigenous species from the vast total based on hardiness, the ability to thrive under domestication, and protective value in restoration. The book serves as a robust reference for students and professionals to use in assessing sustainable horticultural practices along the coastal ecosystem from Somalia and Kenya, through Tanzania to Mozambique.

Biography

Anne H. Outwater received her doctorate in nursing, and post-graduate certificate in environmental studies from Johns Hopkins University in 2008. In Tanzania, where she has lived for 30 years, she is a faculty member in the Department of Community Health Nursing at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences. Her research and community service are demonstrating that violence decreases and health increases when people care for their nearby environment, earning income and ecosystem services from it.

Ilana Locker has had a two-phased professional life. She worked for the Biodiversity Support Program, a consortium program housed within the World Wildlife Fund, for ten years, running a grants program for researchers from low and middle-income countries and managing conservation programs in Latin America. She then became a librarian working in international schools in Venezuela, Tanzania, and Israel. This book, which started as a student project, combines her two professional interests, education and environmental conservation.

Roy E. Gereau is Tanzania Program Director at the Missouri Botanical Garden and has been working in East Africa for 35 years. His activities include discovery and description of new species, training and capacity building of botanists and foresters, and biodiversity inventory of Tanzania’s protected area network. His involvement in this book stems from the desire to assure the survival of East Africa’s native biodiversity and its environment for the benefit of nature and humankind.
