Benin plants are varied and facing threats from the country’s deforestation rate. Plant species and habitat areas range from lush oil palm rows to dry savannas dotted with baobabs.
Tree species to be found in Benin include baobab, coconut, oil palm, ronier palm, ebony, shea nut, kapok, fromager, and Senegal mahogany.
Other exotic plant species to be found in Benin’s forest regions include carnivorous plant utricularia reflexa as well as the aquatic carnivorous plant utricularia stellaris. Phanerophytes, lianas and therophytes are also common species to be found in the forest regions.
Savannah regions include species of long grass as well as occasional baobab and thorny shrubs.
Vegetation in Benin
Vegetation in Benin is mostly consisted of savanna regions, few wetlands regions and very little forest regions, which was once the country’s primary habitat.
Savannah regions are typically dry, with grasslands and shrub. The southern areas along the country’s rivers are typically marshy wetlands merging into forests and woodlands. Coastal areas have minimal vegetation, although palms are often found in this region.
