Making the Most of Indigenous Trees

£7.99

Product description

Used, good condition, soft cover. First published 1996, this edition published 2009.
The book is a highly significant, useful and practical book on indigenous trees from South Africa. This edition features seven additional tree species and a more accessible arrangement of trees according to their botanical name. More than 140 indigenous trees are discussed in detail with the following information provided for each tree: A detailed species description, diagnostic features, flowering and fruiting periods, natural distribution and habitat; the ecological role and utilisation by mammals, birds and insects; economic value and use by people, including use in gardens and on the farm, as a source of food for humans and animals, fibre and medicine; properties of the wood and its utilisation by people; specific guidelines on propagation and cultivation of each species; a map indicating the distribution in South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho is given for each species.
The cover has some light scratching to both the front and back and there is some bumping to all corners as well as the top and bottom of the spine and the top edges of the cover. The binding is sound. There is a previous owner's name written on the first blank page but otherwise the pages are all clean and unmarked. There is a liquid stain to the bottom edge of some of the pages but this does not encroach onto the pages by more than 0.5 mm depth.
