Congratulations to Petra Ballings who has completed species accounts for all 288 species of ferns and fern-allies occurring in Zimbabwe. This remarkable achievement, which has involved field and herbarium work over a number of years, means that the website now has excellent coverage for these interesting plants.

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, Monday, 9 December 2013, there are 15325 images for 3186 species, of which 3050 are native or naturalised and 136 are purely cultivated.
