Tress & Shrubs of the Okavango Delta: The Shell Field Guide Series Part 1

£24.99

Product description

Used, very good condition, soft cover, published 1998.
This book is the first in a series of guidebooks on the Okavango Delta and the National Parks and Reserves of Northern Botswana.The objective of the book is not only to provide a ready means of identification but, more importantly, to create an understanding of the tree in its surroundings or its 'ecological setting'. This suggests that the tree is described in relation to its soil preference, associate plant species, its root system, the birds, animals and insects it attracts and its use to man - in other words, a holistic approach. The trees were chosen on account of their abundance, unique appearance or their economical, nutritional, spiritual or medicinal importance. The book was thus specifically designed for those who take pleasure in the beauty and intricate world of trees and are eager to learn not only to identify the tree, but about all aspects associated with it.
There is some light scratching to the front and back cover and some very light bumping to the corners and the top and bottom of the spine but the binding is sound and the book is in overall very good condition. There is a previous owner's signature on the first page but otherwise the pages are all clean and unmarked.
