About this book

Language: French

Guide to woody plants of Rwanda. A total of 888 species, including subspecies and varieties, belonging to 98 families and 377 genera, are described. Over 540 woody plants are illustrated. The identification of each species is facilitated by botanical identification keys. A coloured vegetation map of the country shows the distribution range of all species. All technical terms are defined in exhaustive glossaries.

The book is aimed primarily at those involved in rural development but it will also appeal to anyone with an interest in the woody flora of Rwanda. The authors hope that this detailed and practical book on woody plants will further an integrated and participatory management of the rich forest resources of Rwanda and contribute to maintain its rich biodiversity.
