Scientific Name: Adansonia digitataCommon Name: Baobab Tree. Adansonia digitata. Savanna - Savanna - Flora: Different groups of plants are prominent in the savannas of different regions.
The Baobab tree is a strange looking tree that grows in low-lying areas in Africa and Australia. It is an emblematic, culturally important and physically majestic sub-tropical tree. Flowers are large (ca. It can grow up to 25 meters tall and can live for several thousand years. Care guide for the Baobab Bonsai (Adansonia digitata) The baobab is the characteristic tree species of the dry savanna of the African lowlands south of the Sahara. The ecological significance of baobab trees in the Savanna ecosystem is yet to be recognized despite its numerous socio-economic importance in the area. In order to preserve this genetic resource of great economic and medicinal value, studies on germination were carried out and in vitro regeneration of this multipurpose tree species through Tissue culture techniques is adopted. Thus, this study examines the impact of land-use type on the multipurpose baobab tree (Adansonia digitata L.) in Burkina Faso, combined with rates and patterns of bark- and leaf-harvesting, and their impact on fruit production. Baobab [Adansonia digitata] Other names include boab, boaboa, tabaldi, bottle tree, upside-down tree, and monkey bread tree. The baobab tree is found in the savannas of Africa and India, mostly around the equator. Baobab Care guide for the Baobab Bonsai (Adansonia digitata) The baobab is the characteristic tree species of the dry savanna of the African lowlands south of the Sahara. Across large parts of the tropical American savannas, the most-common broad-leaved trees are Curatella, locustberries and maricao cimarrons (Byrsonima), and Bowdichia, their place being taken in some seasonally waterlogged sites by the palms Copernica and Mauritia.
It can grow 20 m (65ft) tall and develops a very massive, sometimes bottle-shaped trunk which is often deeply furrowed. 2A, D). Baobab (Adansonia digitata L.) is a large iconic tree (Fig. Adansonia digitata is deciduous, bearing leaves in the wet season (October–March) and follows a steady-state flowering pattern—producing 10–50 flowers per night from October to April (Venter, 2012).Peak flowering occurs in November of each year. Adansonia digitata is an important arboreal species which is being threatened of going into extinction. A strange and famous tree of the African savanna. Genus: Adansonia. The baobab is found in the savannas of African and India, mostly around the equator.
The baobab's bark, leaves, fruit, and trunk are useful to both animals and people.
