About this book

The first edition of Botanical Explorations was written by M.D. Gunn and L.E.W. Codd. It was an invaluable source of information on the numerous collectors who have contributed to the world's knowledge of the plants of southern Africa. During the last 30 years many new botanists have added to the list of collectors, and a revised edition has thus been produced. Botanical Exploration of Southern Africa surveys the history of plant collecting in southern Africa, from the earliest records to the present day. It contains information on each collector that has made a meaningful contribution to botany in this region, as well as numerous black and white illustrations and photographs.
