About this book

Field Guide to the Littoral Forest Trees of South East Madagascar is a photographic field guide to 350 littoral forest tree species of the Tolagnaro region of South East Madagascar. It is aimed at non-specialists and includes simple keys, short descriptions and photographs. Each species is illustrated with photographs of the habit, bark, leaves, flowers and fruit. The authors are experts on the littoral forest flora and indicate the most useful characters for field identification.

The littoral forests of Madagascar are an important and threatened ecosystem covering less than 274 km2. At the southern end of the chain, the forests around Tolagnaro are amongst the richest with many endemic species. Field Guide to the Littoral Forest Trees of South East Madagascar is based on 10 years of surveys by botanists from the Rio Tinto Environmental Team, Missouri Botanic Garden and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. It includes all known trees species and is an invaluable tool for conservationists and anyone else interested in trees visiting these unique forests.
