This field handbook is the result of over fifteen years' experience of forestry operations. It sets out to fill a gap in the literature available on the flora of the dry zones of West Africa. Its 1300 colour photographs of flowers, fruits, leaves and bark will facilitate identification of each of the 360 species presented. As trees are an integral part of the landscape and have many functions and uses, an up-to-date inventory is also given of the traditional uses of the different parts of plants. The determination keys and descriptive sheets are accessible to non-specialists in botany, be they technicians, teachers or students. This book is a reference for anyone in need of information on the trees and shrubs of the region.
