Field guide to the forest trees of Ghana
- Publisher: Natural Resources Institute
This guide has been produced to help foresters identify trees in Ghanaian rain forest. The range and definition of forest types covered are the same as those described by Hall and Swaine (1981). Although the guide is designed primarily for use by Technical Officers in the Forestry Department, it is hoped that other interested parties will find it useful as well: technical jargon has been kept to a minimum and the leaves of most species are illustrated. It is designed to be used in conjunction with other works on the trees of Ghana and neighbouring countries (see bibliography below), but nevertheless the aim is for it to be used primarily in the field, and to preclude the need to take a sackful of books into the forest.
