Flora of Ethiopia and Eritrea

Hedberg, Inga; Edwards, Sue

Uppsala University

Please note (February 2013): we received word from the authors involved in this project that, although the University of Addis Abeba holds stock of all published volumes, the University authorities wish not to sell this work outside of Ethiopia. As such, the NHBS can unfortunately no longer supply this series.

A major African flora, covering approximately 9000 species. It is planned as an eight-volume work.

From the publisher's announcement (June 2005): "When completed the Flora of Ethiopia and Eritrea will be a medium-sized to large African flora manual, covering approximately 7,000 species of vascular plants, both indigenous and important cultivated species."

The Flora is planned as a work in eight volumes, but several volumes may be divided into two parts due to the number of taxa to be included. Only volume 8 is left to be published.

The Flora gives a full description for each family, genus, species and infraspecific taxon. Data are given on accepted names, including types from the Flora area, important synonyms (including all synonyms described on material from the Flora area), collectors and collection numbers of representative specimens, habitat and distribution. Where appropriate, additional information is given on uses. Vernacular names are also given in appendices with the use of the fidel, the special alphabet used for the Semitic languages of Ethiopia.
