Adansonia: Baobab Tree




Adansonia is a genus of eight species of tree, six native to Madagascar, one native to mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula and one to Australia.
A typical common name is baobab. Other common names include boab, boaboa, bottle tree, upside-down tree, and monkey bread tree.
Adansonias reach heights of 5 to 30 meters (16 to 98 ft) and have trunk diameters of 7 to 11 meters (23 to 36 ft). Glencoe Baobab - an African Baobab specimen in Limpopo Province, South Africa, often considered the largest example alive, up to recent times had a circumference of 47 meters (154 ft). Its diameter is estimated at about 15.9 meters (52 ft).
