The trees of Bohdaht’s vast swamps produces a resin that was valuable to the empire because it is a key ingredient to making large clear view port windows and for making lightweight mega-damage armor. The giant trees in the swamps were squeezed to harvest the resin. After being harvested the tree would remain and begin to swell again before the year was out. A single tree could be harvested for resin every other year. With the Robotech Master’s empire toppled the vast swamps have grown even more wild they they already were.
The native intelligent species on Bohdaht is a flying insectoid race with an exo-skeleton, six appendages and wings. The tallest among their race stands five feet tall and the males have a colorful hard carapace that covers their wings when not in flight. The female’s tend to be taller then the males and their wings are longer and narrower. If one were to visit a tribal gathering most stories shared around the bonfire usually involve a tale of a narrow escape from a giant fish leaping out of the water trying to eat an unwary native as it was buzzing by.
The Daht’s, as they were called by the Zentraedi, usually avoided the Tiresian settlers but a couple tribes learned to speak the language and had some social contact. A Tiresian scientist wrote a book on the many plants in the swamps and claimed to of even gotten the flower of life to sprout on the planet but no evidence of the flower thriving on Bohdaht has ever been found.
