About this book

Language: French with English summary

The Musaceae, or banana family, are economically very important. In Central Africa it is represented by the widely cultivated genus Musa, the true bananas, but also by three species of the genus Ensete, the wild African bananas. All species come with a full morphological description, synonyms, data on their distribution, habitat, vernacular names and uses, as well as references to additional literature and the citation of representative specimens. User-friendly keys to all taxa are included.
