About this book

This book covers the history of the Fond Ferdinand nature reserve on the Seychelles together with its different vegetation types, selected plants and animals, and ongoing conservation efforts. The authors discuss the striking forest floor and its crucial importance for the local ecosystem in the deep, endemic coco-de-mer forest and also dwell on the very special forest atmosphere, its colours, sounds and smells, which along with the outstanding plants and animals add to a unique experience when walking the trails of this very special reserve on Praslin.

The section on conservation provides detail on the many harmful bushfires that over the years have hit Praslin and Fond Ferdinand in particular and what is being done to prevent further disasters. They moreover follow the ongoing efforts to rehabilitate the depleted soils after the fires, to strengthen the coco-de-mer population, the attempts to battle illegal poaching, and the
efforts to beat the devastating problem caused by invasive alien species. Finally, a list of plants growing in Fond Ferdinand is presented for the first time.
