<p/>The book is the fourth in a series on Ethiopian useful plants. It treats 12 oleiferous plants, both from a taxonomic and agricultural standpoint, and 11 in less detail. Special chapters are dedicated to the role of the oil plants in Ethiopian agriculture, and on preparation and use of vegetable oil in Ethiopia. Most extensive descriptions are accompanied by a full-page drawing, photographs of the seeds or fruits, a list of synonyms, vernacular names and selected literature. Details on taxonomic problems, occurrence, ecology, husbandry, uses, and contents and specifications of the oil and the seeds or fruits are given too. Indices on common and scientific plant names are added.
