Description:

This guide presents approximately 250 of southern Africa's most commonly seen trees in a succinct and easily accessible way. Clear colour photographs, from the author's own collection, show the trees as they are most typically seen; and, if they provide useful identification criteria, are supplemented by photographs of the flowers, fruit, leaves and/or bark of the tree. Thumbnail silhouettes of leaf shapes are used to lead the reader to the most likely group or family of trees and thus eliminate some of the confusion that arises in trying to identify trees to species' level. Distribution maps pinpoint the areas in which the trees occur.

Features:

• Compact, easy-to-use format; the ideal pocket-sized travelling companion
• Authoritative text describing key identification features, as well as medicinal and commercial uses of the trees
• Distribution maps showing the occurrence of each species in southem Africa
• Full-colour photographs illustrating several aspects of each of the 132 trees featured
• Thumbnail outlines of the leaf type of each tree enabling quick identification
