About this book

The flora is prepared at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in close collaboration with East African Herbarium and in liaison with the University of Dar es Salaam, the University of Nairobi and the Makerere University. Significant contributions are also made by specialists elsewhere. The flora is designed to a high academic standard and should be a useful resource reference for anyone concerned with the identification and utilization of plants in eastern Africa. Each family is published as a separate part.

This fascicle treats the family Viscaceae, a family of 7 genera and ± 450 species, widely distributed through tropical and north temperate regions. Formerly united with the Loranthaceae, but now generally reorganized as a distinct family, as discussed in the introduction to Loranthaceae.
