African landscapes, trees and animals have a long history

African landscapes have been around for centuries and are still in use today, with trees in particular being used for building and irrigation. 

“The oldest tree in Africa, a giant African elephant, is thought to be from the 12th century,” Dr. Paulo said.

“The trees are so well-preserved and so well adapted to their environment that they are the best preserved trees around the world.” 

Dr. Paulos work with the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Human Origins Research.

“I wanted to see if I could actually get a species tree in the same state that they would be living in, so I took a specimen of the giant African tree, and I got a tree that was much older than the tree that is living in my garden.

So, it’s really interesting to see what trees are surviving in the wild and what kind of trees are living in these conditions.”

The species tree is a species of giant African giant tree, named Ocampa grandiflora.

“It’s a giant tree that has been there for quite a while,” Dr Paulos said. 

It was found in the Niger delta in the 1920s, and Dr.

Paulos and his colleagues were able to take the tree and look at its environment. 

They found it had a very dry climate and it had not seen a lot of rainfall in 100 years.

“This tree is very different to other giant trees because it is a very tall tree that stands over 3 meters high,” Dr Ryan said.

He said this tree also had a different climate pattern, which means the tree is able to live in a different environment than other giant African trees.

“They’ve got really nice thick roots, they’ve got some nice hard, woody roots that are much more resilient than most trees in the forest,” Dr Michael said.

Dr. Ryan said this species of tree is also extremely resilient to climate change.

“Its tree is really able to survive in very dry conditions because it’s a tree from a place that is very, very high in elevation, it has a very large canopy that’s so much thicker than most other trees,” Dr Mike said.

The tree has also had to adapt to the climate of Africa.

“If you look at the tree in its native habitat, the forest in the area it lives in, it is in a very high latitude climate.

So it has to get a lot more water to keep its canopy and also because it has such a large canopy, there are very few nutrients in the soil,” Dr Dr Ryan explained.”

So it has got to be very careful to take advantage of those nutrients and to avoid being left behind by the rain that is coming down on this area,” Dr Joseph said.
