Northern Botswana and the surrounding regions are home to a rich diversity of plants, and this ambitious field guide offers detailed accounts of more than 550 flowering herbs, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses, and sedges. More than two thousand color photographs illustrate key identification features, while detailed information on habitat, flowering period, and uses of the various species flesh out the accounts. It is an invaluable tool for researchers, wildlife managers, and amateur botanists alike.
