Mozambique is a land of immense variety of landscape and biological diversity. However, its forests and woodlands are being cleared at an alarming rate. With few exceptions, the country has no inventory of its trees and shrubs, the component that forms the web or skeleton of Mozambique's vegetation.
Trees and Shrubs Mozambique provides the first accurate and comprehensive account of the woody plants of Mozambique and their distribution and how to identify then through the use of keys, descriptions and illustrations.
