A photographic masterpiece, this beautiful book is a fitting tribute to the baobab – an extraordinary and majestic tree found principally in Madagascar, and peripherally in Africa and Australia.
The first section offers a short introduction to the classification and general description of baobabs, details of their life history, biogeography, dispersal and their role in people's lives. The second section comprises a guide to each of the eight baobab species, including botanical description, details of their habitat, distribution and principal uses, accompanied by clear images and line drawings of the leaves, flowers, fruits and growth habit of each species.
Interesting text and lavish photographs throughout make Baobabs of the World irresistible for specialist botanists and lay enthusiasts alike, and it will have particular appeal for tourists too.
