Cycads of central africa

Cycads of central africa

The cycad genus Encephalartos has captured the imagination of botanists, plant lovers, landscapers and enthusiasts for over 100 years. The many members of the genus Encephalartos are arguably the most diverse, widely distributed and spectacular of all the cycad families & are endemic to the continent of Africa.
This book focuses on those plants found outside South Africa. In general these plants tend to be more vigorous growers, yet harder to study & obtain due to their wide geographic distribution. As a result,
many of the plants described in this book were at the time of this books publication, largely unknown and poorly represented photographically. This book attempts to remedy this.
This book contains 220 colour  pictures , almost all taken by the author.
There are 27 species featured in the text. 10 countries are covered.
It contains notes on how to grow each plant in cultivation;
a layman’s description of each species.

The author traveled to 9 countries over a period of 9 years and a detailed travelogue of the many
hazards and adventures encountered by the author to photograph these plants makes interesting reading!

The book will never be re-printed. Copies are available from us.
