New book — National Botanical Garden of Seychelles — offers insights on tropical plants

Visitors to the Seychelles Botanical Gardens can now gain a better insight into the plant community of the garden thanks to a newly published guidebook.

Authored by Danish national Steen G. Hansen, the book entitled ‘The National Botanical Garden of Seychelles’ explores the biodiversity of the tropical plants of the garden. The book is on sale at the Antigone bookshop in Victoria, the capital, at $26 (SCR 350).

The book focuses on the ethno-botanical aspects of the garden giving details of the origin and names of the existing plant and the level of global threat they face as well as how it can be used as food, medicine and in craftsmanship.
