This compact and practical field guide describes 50 of the most common trees and shrubs that occur in Etosha National Park and in northern and central Namibia. The common names of plants and a botanical list of all presently known plant species in the park supplements the text.
The authors describe the important characteristics of major trees and shrubs, relating these to the animals and birds that depend on them for food and shade. Interesting facts are also given on the beneficial uses of these plants for humans and animals. European and Namibian common names of the species add to the reader's knowledge.
This fascinating compilation elegantly illustrates the vital link between Namibia's plants and travellers. Because the plants described herein occur in many parts of the country, consequently, this is a practical field guide for tourists, farmers and all people interested in obtaining a better understanding of the immense wealth of Namibia's indigenous flora.
