A milestone has been passed today (6 October, 2012) on the Zimbabwe site. We now have 3,001 species with images. This is a significant achievement and is tribute to the hard work of the Flora of Zimbabwe team.
Excluding purely cultivated species, we have 2,877 native or naturalised species, which is getting close to the half-way point.

This site is work in progress towards an e-flora of Zimbabwe and is a joint venture between Bart Wursten, Mark Hyde and Petra Ballings. We expect that it will also be useful for people living in neighbouring countries, namely Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia as parts of their flora are similar to that of Zimbabwe.
As of today, Saturday, 18 May 2013, there are 14130 images for 3082 species, of which 2948 are native or naturalised and 134 are purely cultivated.
