Clivia. Nature and Nurture. 2009. illus. photogr. maps. 220 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
Clivia is a genus that is cultivated on almost all continents of the world. This is in sharp contrast to its natural distribution range, which is confined to the southern tip of Africa. The book clearly identifies and characterises all the species in one volume, describing all varieties, habitats, distribution, ecology and endemism. The book emphasises the South African origins, ecology and habitat of the genus, particularly for the overseas reader. It locates the genus in a broad natural and sociocultural context, explores the commercial value of the genus, as well as identify ethno-botanical practices and the current conservation status of and threats to populations and conservation strategies. The book presents the anatomical, physiological and genetic make-up of the plant in laymans terms, but at the same time it serves as a model for a broad spectrum of plant growers. The book introduces growers to the principles and practices specific to the genus, as well as aspects of pests and diseases and their control.
