The genus Aloe is arguably one of Africa's most iconic and valued plant genera. It is immensely popular among succulent plant collectors and horticulturalists, and is also the source of several commercially used natural products. The aloe names book brings together, for the first time, information on the current taxonomy of each species, the plethora of common names by which aloes are known globally, derivative natural products, as well as hundreds of historical names and the richly descriptive meanings of Latin names used for aloes. Lists of common names, synonyms and aloe-derived products allow quick and easy searching. The text includes an introduction to aloes, comprehensive reference list and colour photographs. The aloe names book is essential for succulent enthusiasts, nurserymen, CITES agencies, and natural resource managers. It will also be useful as a field companion for researchers and natural historians interested in ethnobotany and plant use.
