Moctar Sacande, Lassina Sanou, Henk J. Beentje avec Guide D'identification Des Arbres Du Burkina Faso
Guide d'identification des arbres du Burkina Faso is the result of over ten years research in collaboration with Kew's Millennium Seed Bank Project. Over 200 woody plant species are described in the book, with accompanying keys, colour photographs, distribution maps and local names and uses. This book is an essential reference for anyone required to know and recognize the woody flora of the forests of Burkina Faso.
