About this book

Kalanchoe (Crassulaceae) in Southern Africa provides a highly readable, comprehensively updated, illustrated account of the Kalanchoe species, a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants. This book includes overviews of the family Crassulaceae and the genus Kalanchoe in global and subcontinental contexts, followed by information on the taxonomic history of the genus. The characters and ecology of the species are also discussed, including their distribution ranges, where they occur, their habitat preferences, and where the species were formally recorded for the first time which are often well beyond the boundaries of southern Africa. For each of the indigenous and naturalised species comprehensive taxonomic, descriptive, and other information of interest is provided, including maps of their distribution ranges in southern Africa and beyond, and reference to the type specimens of the species names.

This is the must-have resource on Kalanchoe for plant scientists, plant taxonomists, ethnobotanists, herbarium curators, ecologists, pharmacologists, invasions scientists, horticulturalists and landscape designers.
