Language: French with English summary
A flora treatment for the Anthericaceae occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Burundi is given. The family comprises only one genus in the area of the Flora: Chlorophytum. A total of 52 species, among which 3 imperfectly known ones, as well as 4 subspecies, 24 varieties and 1 form are treated. User-friendly keys to all taxa are included. Four taxa are endemic to the area, and many others appear to be rare. All species come with a full description, synonyms, data on their distribution, habitat, vernacular names and uses, as well as references to additional literature and the citation of representative specimens used. Twenty-one taxa are illustrated with colour photographs, twenty-eight by line-drawings. Upper-Katanga, especially the region around Lubumbashi, is a hotspot for the genus, with many taxa threatened by deforestation and urbanisation.
