Southern Africa is home to more than 2,000 introduced (not indigenous) trees. These non-native species are encountered daily and form a familiar part of our urban landscapes, growing successfully in parks, gardens, along road sides, and in other open spaces. This guide features nearly 600 of the most common and familiar of these and, using the same model of identification as FG Trees of Southern Africa, facilitates ID based on leaf and stem features.

The book provides the country of origin for each species and offers key information on cultivation and uses. Each entry is supported by colour images that depict key features, and a shaded map that shows the plant’s cold tolerance (where the species can grow). An essential guide for landscapers and gardeners as well as tree enthusiasts who will struggle to find these trees in their guide to indigenous trees.

The Little Seagull Handbook with Exercises (Spiral bound, Third Edition): Richard Bullock, Michal Brody, Francine Weinberg The Little Seagull Handbook with Exercises (Spiral bound, Third Edition)
Richard Bullock, Michal Brody, Francine Weinberg
R497 Discovery Miles 4 970 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument) but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The third edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter-and the option to include free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.
