About this book

Language: English

Deals with the plants of Tropical Africa yielding vegetable oils or fats. PROTA's database 'SPECIESLIST' presents 249 species used as such, but only 65 are 'primary use' vegetable oil plants, qualifying for treatment in this volume. The other 184 species have been listed as 'Vegetable oil plants with other primary use' and referred to other Handbook volumes. The 65 'primary use' vegetable oils are described in 48 review articles, implying that 17 species have no separate article due to lack of information; they are only mentioned in the articles of related species.

Can be purchased with or without a CD-ROM, which allows for easy searching through the texts and contains in addition numerous photographs.
