Abstract <p/>The book is the first in a series of publications on Ethiopian useful plants. It treats 19 papilionaceous crops, both from a taxonomic and an agricultural standpoint.<p/>Special chapters are dedicated to the physical and biological environment, the agro-ecological regions in which the country can be divided, the agricultural systems, and some taxonomic problems with special reference to 'cultivar' taxonomy.<p/>The extensive botanical description of each taxon is accompanied by a full-page drawing, photographs of the seeds, lists of synonyms, literature and names, and details on taxonomic problems, occurrence, ecology, husbandry, uses and protein content.<p/>Indices on common and scientific plant names are added.
