Entries in rosewood oil (1)


Pau Rosa

I can't remember where I took this photo, but I know that it's Aniba rosaeodora Ducke, the source of rosewood oil, and I know that this tree species is currently on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because of over-exploitation and indiscriminate felling. So maybe it's just as well that I don't remember where I took the picture. [NOTE: Somewhere in the Brazilian Amazon in a botanical garden or zoo; Museu Goeldi in Belém?]
