About this book

Language: French

The first flora of Seychelles was included in J G Baker's work Flora of Mauritius and the Seychelles published in 1877. Since then, as in most tropical countries, the natural environment of archipelago has changed considerably as a result of increasing pressure from human activities. Today, except in a few places that still have their original appearence, Seychelles landscapes are less marked by native plants than by the profusion of exotic species introduced during two centuries of human occupation.

This update of knowledge of the flora, dedicated to Dicotyledons, lays stress on indigenous, and especially endemic, species. The book also covers foreign species which are now more numerous and more conspicuous than the former.
