About this book

Language: English

PROTA 16 deals with the fibres of Tropical Africa. PROTA’s database ‘SPECIESLIST’ presents 1420 species used as such. 515 among them are ‘primary use’ fibres qualifying for treatment in this volume, the other 905 species have been listed as ‘Fibres with other primary use’ and referred to other Handbook volumes. The 515 ‘primary use’ fibres are described in 248 review articles, implying that 267 species are briefly mentioned and described in the articles of more important related species; they have no separate article due to lack of information.

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