Baobabs of the world book cover

Baobabs of the world : the upside-down trees of Madagascar, Africa and Australia


By Andy Petignat & Louise Jasper (2016)

A photographic masterpiece, this beautiful book is a fitting tribute to the baobab - an extraordinary and majestic tree found principally in Madagascar, and peripherally in Africa and Australia. The first section offers a short introduction to the classification and general description of baobabs, details of their life history, biogeography, dispersal and their role in people's lives. The second section comprises a guide to each of the eight baobab species, including botanical description, details of their habitat, distribution and principal uses, accompanied by clear images and line drawings of the leaves, flowers, fruits and growth habit of each species. —Cover.
