Summary: 

Revised and expanded by Coleen Mannheimer and Barbara Curtis.

This long-awaited, full-colour photographic guide to trees and shrubs of Namibia includes descriptions of and keys to over 400 species. Many of the species, particularly the shrubs, are not covered by other tree guides for the region.

As far as possible photographs of every aspect of each plant - habit, bark, leaf, flower and fruit - have been included to facilitate species identification. Keys to families, genera and species are provided, as well as hints on field identification, habitat and uses. This is an indispensable handbook for plant enthusiasts in Namibia.
