Description:

Field guide to the plants of northern Botswana, including the Okavango Delta: useful in countries and geographical areas adjacent to northern Botswana in the Zambesi Basin.

Summary / Notes:

Northern Botswana and surrounding regions boast a rich and scientifically important diversity of plants and animals, which attract large numbers of tourists and other visitors. This field guide includes over 500 flowering herbs, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses, sedges and sedge-like plants, illustrated with over 2,000 colour photographs. For ease of use, plants are arranged by flower colour. Two detailed sections on grasses and sedges are ordered by inflorescence structure, then by family, genus and species. Key identifying features are listed, along with habitat, flowering period and uses and beliefs. A glossary is also provided. An essential guide for all those wanting to study and enjoy the flora of the area, this book is an invaluable tool for researchers, wildlife managers, amateur botanists, students, rangers, guides and tourists alike.
