The Manketti, Mongongo or Mangetti, Schinziophyton rautanenii (Schinz) Radcl.-Sm. is an indigenous tree in Namibia, the fruit of which are of significant socio-economic value. The tree occurs in what appears to be even aged groves on deep sand, as part of the dry savanna woodlands. Natural regeneration in the woodland areas seems to be scarse, although some success has been achieved by planting truncheons. Introduction Schinziophyton rautanenii (Schinz) Radcl.-Sm. (initially classified as… Expand

Distribution and abundance of a keystone tree, Schinziophyton rautanenii, and factors affecting its structure in Zambia, southern Africa
Schinziophytonrautanenii is a keystone tree species whose fruits are eaten by wildlife and livestock, nuts are used to extract oil for human use and its wood is used for making curios that are soldExpand
Annual diameter growth of Pterocarpus angolensis (Kiaat) and other woodland species in Namibia
TLDR
It is suggested that simple ring counting on increment cores and stem discs with additional diameter data can provide valuable information on growth rates and rotation cycles of P. angolensis and may be a good indicator of tree age if a sufficient number of samples are obtained. Expand
Characterization of Schinziophyton rautanenii (Manketti) nut oil from Namibia rich in conjugated fatty acids and tocopherol
Abstract The Schinziophyton rautanenii tree is an important food source for many communities of the African continent. Oil extracted from the Manketti nut is of great economic value, due to itsExpand
Fire damage to Schinziophyton rautanenii (Schinz) trees in north-eastern Namibia.
The nuts of the Mangetti, Schinziophyton rautanenii, are an important food source for a number of rural communities. The environment in which the tree grows, however, is subject to frequent burning.Expand
An investigation into the antineoplastic properties of Schinziophyton Rautanenii and Colophospermum mopane.
TLDR
This study evaluated two Namibian indigenous plants, Schinziophyton rautanenii and Colophospermum mopane used medicinally in Zambezi region, for their phytochemical content and anti-protease activity and found the highest in vitro anticancer activity was exhibited by the organic root extract of C.mopane.

Fatty acid profile of Manketti (Schinziophyton rautanenii) nut oil: Influence of extraction method and experimental evidence on the existence of -eleostearic acid
TLDR
The results indicate that Manketti oil that is relatively rich in unsaturated fats can be obtained by SPE and SFE, which is suitable for edible purposes and the existence of α-eleostearic acid has been proven by GC, Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques.
