Field Guide to Trees of Southern Africa
This field guide to the trees of Southern Africa covers approximately 900 of the species found in the region. The trees are grouped into sections according to leaf shape, and each section is identified by a line drawing of the leaf group. Each species is illustrated by photographs of the diagnostic tree parts, which may include flowers, fruit, bark, or a combination of these. Concise descriptions of each tree are written with an emphasis on identification and the authors provide additional information on medicinal and other uses of the tree parts where it may be of interest to the reader.
