Book Review: Friis, I., van Breugel, P., Weber, O., Sebsebe Demissew, 2022. The Western Woodlands of Ethiopia


  • Zerihun Woldu Addis Ababa University


The Western Woodlands of Ethiopia describes the woodland vegetation of western Ethiopia, which has been less studied compared to other parts of the country. The study of the flora and vegetation on the Horn of Africa has resulted in many, much-needed publications, considering the importance of the Horn as one of the significant biodiversity hot spots in the world. With this great publication, Friis and his collaborators have given the world the first detailed description of the woodlands of western Ethiopia.
