This full colour photographic guide to wildflowers, written by a Namibian botanist, covers the central highlands of Namibia. The area concerned is scenically, geologically and topographically very diverse, providing many habitats and niches for plants and animals. It harbours a high plant diversity, including many endemic species. Over four hundred and fifty species are covered in this book. The emphasis is on wildflowers, but a few of the most common ferns, grasses and shrubs have also been described. Wherever possible, photographs of the whole plant as well as close-ups of the flower and fruit have been included. A simple description of each plant and a brief overview of distribution, habitat and uses are provided, as well as some common names. Hints on how to tell confusing species apart are also offered. This handbook is a must for anyone with an interest in the indigenous flora of Namibia. After Wildflowers of the southern Namib it is the second in a series on the wildflowers of Namibia.
