The Flora of Central Africa is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in the vascular plants of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Burundi. This areas harbours about 10,000 different species, in more than 260 families. This Flora appears in two series, the Spermatophytes (seed plants) and Pteridophytes (ferns). From 1948 to 1963 volumes I to X appeared, usually with several families in each volume. From 1967 onwards, each new family treatment is being published in a separate volume.
For every plant species there is, apart from its correct scientific name and an extensive description, information on its distribution, habitat, local names, usage, references to additional literature, etc. This richly illustrated work with user-friendly keys renders it possible to identify any plant to the correct species.
