Default New Species Being Discovered

A giant "new" medicinal tree and a new tropical mistletoe are amongst new plant discoveries.

Giant tree and tropical mistletoe among 2010's great discoveries - Telegraph

"Among the most surprising was a huge tree that towers more than 130 feet tall in the rainforests of Cameroon, a poisonous aubergine that has been used for generations by local people in Africa to treat infections, and a new species of mistletoe discovered flourishing in a mountain forest in Mozambique."

About the very large tree:

"Name: Magnistipula multinervia
Location: Korup National Park, Cameroon
This huge species of tree is so rare that only four specimens have been found growing in a remote area of rainforest in Cameroon."
