Caption: Monkeybread tree (Adansonia digitata). Also known as the baobab tree, the genus name for this plant comes from the French botanist Michel Adanson (1727-1806), who described this species. This baobab tree is widespread on mainland Africa, where it can grow to great sizes. The fruit are edible, giving rise to the monkeybread name. The large trunk of the tree is used to store water. Artwork from the ninth volume (first period of 1892) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
