About this book

The Flora is prepared at the 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. This reference should be of use to anyone concerned with the identification and utilization of plants in eastern Africa.

This fascicle deals with the former family Anthericaceae which, since the adoption of the APG III system of 2009, is now part of the subfamily Agavoideae. This is a tropical to temperate family with eight genera, of which two occur in Africa. The number of species les is difficult to estimate due to uncertain delimitation at different levels.
