Abstract: The site presents especially the vascular plants of the South-Western Morocco where since 1971 a lot of scientific missions were carried out. The recording of biocenoses of the South Western Morocco has been the subject of numerous publications over the past years.The plant biodiversity of the South Western Morocco reflects the biogeographic heterogeneity where mediterranean, tropical, succulent and endemic taxa coexist. The argan tree [Argania spinosa (L.) Skeels (Sapotaceae)] is an endemic of south western Morocco appreciated for its edible, high nutritional oil, extracted from the kernels of the drupe-like fruit. The purpose of this site is simply to know the plant species in the region, including many endemic species which are among the region’s imperiled species. [Information of the supplier]
