The Flora of Guinea keys may include species whose presence occurs in neighboring countries: Cameroon (Cam), Gabon (Gab) and Sao Tome and Principe (ST). These might appear in the study area, but are not numbered nor is there included more information about them. The Equatorial Guinea database has over 60,000 records for each taxon which provides the following information: Name accepted, Synonyms, Type, Description, Iconography, Map, Habitat altitude. Distribution Specimens and References.
This site provides information about the flowering plants and ferns of Mozambique. This is a sister site to the Flora of Botswana, Caprivi, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe websites, which together cover the Flora Zambesiaca area.
Florabank1 is a database that contains distributional data on the wild flora (indigenous species, archeophytes and naturalised aliens) of Flanders and the Brussels Capital Region. It holds about 3 million records of vascular plants, dating from 1800 till present.
This online flora provides access to all published volumes of the Flore d’Afrique Centrale. It covers about 6,000 vascular plant taxa from the Democratic Republic Congo, Rwanda and Burundi. The Flore d’Afrique Centrale has been published since 1948 and has been digitised from the paper volumes. Errors produced by the digitisation have been corrected, but apart from a few exceptions the text in the online version is identical to the original version.
Author's note: This project began when I was trying to find out more about my Grandfather as part of my genealogical research. I assumed that as he was a famous explorer there would be loads of information about him on the internet, but there was practically nothing. I was given a typed manuscript written by my Great Aunt Winifred, herself a celebrated Speech Therapist, as well as most of Frank's published books, and Charles Lyte's biography, and from these I have created this and previous versions of this website.
