About this book

A field guide to the larger trees that occur in Ghanaian forests. It is based on photographs and drawings and is designed to minimise the need for reading complicated botanical text.

This guide includes 326 species, virtually all Ghana's forest canopy and emergent trees.

The photos show leaves, fruit, flowers, bark, wood and trunk and any other identification aids. Each species account has brief notes on ecology, size, bark & slash, leaves, flowers, fruits, and similar species.
