About the website

This site is work in progress towards an e-flora of Zimbabwe and is a joint venture between Bart Wursten, Mark Hyde, Petra Ballings and Meg Coates Palgrave. 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, Friday, 29 August 2014, there are 17498 images for 3314 species, of which 3172 are native or naturalised and 142 are purely cultivated.

The Site history page gives details of the latest additions to the site. There is also a frequently asked questions page.
