About this book

Edition 1 (1937) of this work listed just over 2000 species. A preliminary survey for this revision showed a three-fold increase of species for inclusion and an overall increase of information available for those in Edition 1. Families are being dealt with alphabetically, and genera within families, and species within genera also alphabetically. Volume 2 herewith contains families E to I with 900 species including the all-important Gramineae. European and trade-names, if any, and West African names, if known, are given for each species. There follow a brief description, the sort of habitat each frequents, and then the known economic attributes in West Africa, and over the rest of Africa and beyond, if so wide-spread.
