About this book

Much has been written in recent years about the wealth of flora on the large island of Madagascar, the future decline of which seems ordained by overpopulation and the poverty connected with this. Particularly alarming are the deep-rooted traditions, such as slash and burn farming, uneconomic cultivation, and even the all-destroying excessive livestock breeding. These factors contribute to irrevocable and permanent soil erosion and the loss of a wealth of irreplaceable flora. This book is result of many years of effort on the part of Walter Röösli, with the support of a handful of Malagasy and Swiss enthusiasts, and is a strikingly beautiful book about the endemic members of Pachypodium, a genus of succulent spine-bearing trees and shrubs, on the Big Red Island.
