Located between Madagascar and the Mozambique coast, Mayotte is one of the four Comoro islands. On this volcanic territory, the tropical climate nurtured the development of a complex and diverse natural vegetation composed of more than 1,350 flowering plants and ferns.
This book features in particular:
• complete information on the ecology and status of each species (rareness, threats, conservation status);
• local names and uses in agriculture and traditional medicine;
• colour photographs of all species by the author;
• a complete index of synonyms.
This book by Fabien Barthelat is a reference for professionals in charge of habitat conservation on Mayotte, for Mahorans mindful of their natural heritage and for all those interested in the plant diversity of this outstanding territory.
