Arbres du Monde
Trees provide us with a variety of ecosystem services. They produce fruits, give firewood, offer medicinal, environmental benefits and inspire poetry and legends. They are considered sacred in many religions and culture. This book has been written and designed with the non-specialist reader in mind. It is subdivided into five parts for the five continents and highlights their contributions to the world’s tree lore. 737 colour photographs illustrate 296 of some striking trees from around the world.
