Photo Guide to Plants of Southern Africa
Title: Photo Guide to Plants of Southern Africa
Creator: Jürgens, Norbert; et al.
Abstract: African plants have developed an overwhelming diversity of forms, functions, habitats and geographical distribution. Therefore, and due to the limited number of publications, the identification of correct species names in many taxonomic groups is still a problem. This guide supports rapid identification of the plant species by presenting photographs of them in a phylogenetic order. A number of tools allow users to scan taxonomic groups, like genera and families. Soon, the website will also allow users to identify unknown species by entering their characters like flower colour, etc. This regional guide is based on databases and includes a good representation of all known species of the southern African region. At present, Namibia and the western parts of South Africa are best represented, while a growing number of photos from Angola, Botswana are also included. [Information of the supplier]
