Plants of the Gold Coast


    THE author of this work, who is master of agriculture and biology at Achimota College, is anxious to commit to print the vernacular names of plants of the Gold Coast and their relevant proverbs, with interpretations, before they are forgotten in the changed conditions of modern life. The work has been undertaken mainly to help African teachers and other Africans who are willing to take an interest in their flora.
