African Flora’s

Tropical Africa is a highly biodiverse region housing around 11,000 species of flowering plants, and thousands of fungal species. Their conservation and sustainable use is seriously hindered by insufficient floristic data and a lack of tools to identify the species.

Meise Botanic Garden is coordinating three large African Flora projects that provide such data and tools for plants and fungi. For each of these, large international teams of experts are involved to contribute, while our botanical illustrators provide detailed botanical drawings to assist the identification process.
