Tieghemella africana is a tree species of the genus Tieghemella in the plant family of the Sapotaceae. It occurs in Cameroon, the Republic of the Congo, Gabon, and Sierra Leone and is threatened by habitat loss and overharvesting.

A genus is a taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms, as well as viruses, in biology. In the hierarchy of biological classification, genus comes above species and below family. In binomial nomenclature, the genus name forms the first part of the binomial species name for each species within the genus.

Tieghemella is a genus of the plant family Sapotaceae described as a genus in 1890. The wood of Tieghemella species is known as makore in the lumber trade.

Plant multicellular eukaryote of the kingdom Plantae

Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae. Historically, plants were treated as one of two kingdoms including all living things that were not animals, and all algae and fungi were treated as plants. However, all current definitions of Plantae exclude the fungi and some algae, as well as the prokaryotes. By one definition, plants form the clade Viridiplantae, a group that includes the flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms, ferns and their allies, hornworts, liverworts, mosses and the green algae, but excludes the red and brown algae.
