PROTA (CTA, PROTA)

PROTA – Plant Resources of Tropical Africa – is an international programme focusing on some 7,000 useful African plants. Species are grouped into commodity groups and described according to their uses, trade, properties, botany, ecology, agronomy or silviculture, genetic resources, and breeding. Various media are used– including books and CD-ROMs – to make available a wealth of knowledge on these resources.
