succulents of madagascar


when speaking about succulent plants in madagascar, one naturally thinks about the spiny thicket of southern and western madagascar characterized by arid, sub-desert climate. outstanding by the level of endemism, 95 per cent of species are endemic, very conspicuous with woody specimens from the family of didiereaceae dominating this kind of vegetation by a height of more than 10m, madagascar as a world apart finds the whole extent of this naming in the south.

succulent plants though are not only restricted to the south of madagascar, they are well represented on the high plateau, in high mountains as along the western coast through amber cape in the north tip of the island.
