Paris (AFP) - Some of Africa's oldest and biggest baobab trees -- a few dating all the way back to the ancient Greeks -- have abruptly died, wholly or in part, in the past decade, researchers said Monday.

baobab tree worth a visit, but still rather disappointing
we had gone to queen's park to see the baobab tree--which is supposed to be the largest/oldest in the caribbean, the tree was, well, large, but otherwise nothing really spectacular, in fact, it's almost easy to miss the tree bc they haven't really made it a focus.... it was in a corner of the park and the only indication was a wooden post next to you telling you THIS is the famous baobab tree, we took a few pictures, and was out of there, the whole visit took us less than 10 minutes.
