Publisher: Shell Oil Botswana
Softcover, 15x21 cm, 170 pages, throughout illustrated
Ein zeitloser, schön illustrierter Naturführer über die Wildblumen des Okavango Deltas und deren medizinischer Nutzen und Ernährungswert.
This book was specifically designed for those who take pleasure not only in the beauty of wild flowers and the ability to identify them, but are also keen to learn about the intricate world surrounding the plant.
The objective of this book is not only to provide a ready means of identification but, more importantly, to create an understanding in the reader of the plant in its “ecological setting”.
This suggests that the plant is described in relation to its soil preference, associate plant species, its root system, the birds, animals and insects it attracts and its use or menace to man - in other words, a holistic approach.
The flowers were chosen on account of their abundance, showy appearance, medicinal, economical, toxicological and spiritual importance, as well as their general usefulness.
The holistic approach will be maintained throughout the series. The ultimate aim is to give the reader an understanding of the interdependence of all living creatures and their interaction with natural systems and to provide, simultaneously, user-friendly field guides and reference books.
In Common Wild Flowers of the Okavango Delta only 50 species have been described to keep the publication compact. It was specifically designed for walks and easy transportation.
The species have been carefully chosen to cover most of the common flowers encountered on walks and game drives, therefore it is ideal for visitors.
