About this book

Language: French

The Gabonese forest includes several hundred species of trees. A handful is well known, many are much less, and some are still anonymous. This guide takes allows you to discover the 37 botanical families and 225 species, of which over 140 are illustrated. It allows you to identify them and know them better using simple diagrams and nearly 1,000 colour photographs of botanical details. For the more experienced, new data on the ecology will consolidate their knowledge. The objective of this work is the sharing and dissemination of knowledge, so that agents of the administrations in charge of forests, as well as logging companies and local people can better understand and manage these valuable species. It can also slip into the pocket of hikers and naturalists, who will be able to more easily recognize and name these precious trees of the Gabonese forest.

Summary in French:
La forêt gabonaise comprend plusieurs centaines d'espèces d'arbres. Une poignée est très connue, beaucoup le sont nettement moins, et certaines sont encore anonymes. Ce guide vous emmène à la découverte de 37 familles botaniques et de 225 espèces, dont plus de 140 sont illustrées. Il vous permet de les identifier et de mieux les connaître à l'aide de schémas simples et de près de 1000 photographies de détails botaniques en couleur. Pour les plus expérimentés, de nouvelles données concernant l'écologie permettront de consolider leurs connaissances. L'objectif de cet ouvrage est le partage et la vulgarisation des connaissances, afin que les agents des administrations en charge des forêts, tout comme les exploitants forestiers ou encore les populations locales, puissent mieux comprendre et gérer ces essences utiles. Il pourra aussi se glisser dans la poche des randonneurs et des naturalistes, qui seront en mesure de reconnaître et de nommer plus facilement ces arbres précieux de la forêt gabonaise.
