About this book

The Flora of Tropical East Africa is a descriptive, extensively illustrated account of the flowering plants and ferns native and naturalized in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, together with information on exotic ornamental and crop plants. At least one species of each genus is illustrated, and the bibliography and synonymy are sufficiently detailed to explain the nomenclature and taxonomic circumscriptions within a broad regional context.

This volume deals with the family Solanaceae, informally known as the nightshade or potato family. It is a family of flowering plants that includes a number of important agricultural crops as well as many toxic plants.
