Kernels from two wild fruits in Mozambique, Adansonia
digitata and Sclerocarya birrea, were selected for this study to determine their amino acid and fatty acid composition, as well as the monomeric composition of their dietary fibre.
The vegetation is made up of several species of which the most remarkable are Rhizophora mangle, Rhizophora harissoni, Avicennia africana, Adansonia
digitata (baobab), Khaya senegalensis, Cordyla penata (Dimb), Daniellia oliveri (santan).

Three of these were subterranean caves; one was a large hole in a Baobab tree, Adansonia
In addition, triterpenoids and saponins in choroform; saponins in hexane; steroids, saponins, tannins and alkaloids in methanol extracts of Adansonia
digitata had revealed their toxicity against Ae.
For his thesis titled: "Modulation of the redox status, phase 2 drug metabolizing enzymes and fumonisin-induced cancer promotion in rat liver by selected southern African medicinal plants", Dr Hikuam characterised antioxidant contents and capacities of Adansonia
digitata, Agathosma betulina, Siphonochilus aethiopicus and Myrothamnus flabellifolius.
The Baobab Adansonia
digitata is preserved as a historically important tree by the Archeological Department in Pallimunei, Mannar.
There are nine species in the genus Adansonia
, one occurring in Australia and the others African.
5 m people: Faidherbia albida, a nitrogen fixing species that improves soil fertility and provides fodder for livestock, Pilostigma reticulatum and Guiera senegalensis for fodder, Combretum glutinosum for firewood, and Adansonia
digatat for edible nutritious leaves.
