A new concise, modern and authoritative handbook to the plants of Northern Botswana, a scientifically important region with a rich diversity of plants and animals.


Authors: Alison and Roger Heath. 560pp. 234 x 156 mm. 2000+ colour photographs. Hardback, ISBN 9781842461839, Kew Publishing 2009.

Northern Botswana and surrounding regions boast a rich and scientifically important diversity of plants and animals, which attract large numbers of tourists and other visitors. This field guide includes over 500 flowering herbs, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses, sedges and sedge-like plants, illustrated with over 2,000 colour photographs. For ease of use, plants are arranged by flower colour. Two detailed sections on grasses and sedges are ordered by inflorescence structure, then by family, genus and species. Key identifying features are listed, along with habitat, flowering period and uses and beliefs. A glossary is also provided. An essential guide for all those wanting to study and enjoy the flora of the area, this book is an invaluable tool for researchers, wildlife managers, amateur botanists, students, rangers, guides and tourists alike.


Alison and Roger Heath have been keen amateur botanists and wildlife photographers for many decades. They began their work as researchers for The Selinda Foundation in 2001. They are continuing their research based on Chief’s Island in the Okavango Delta, sponsored by Sanctuary Retreats.

David Goyder works within the Africa Drylands team at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He has made substantial contributions to both the Flora of Tropical East Africa and Flora Zambesiaca.
