Flora Zambesiaca online

A database containing all the published volumes of Flora
Zambesiaca is now available on-line via the Royal Botanic Gardens
Kew website;


The Flora is currently 70% complete and the database contains
around 10,000 accepted names. Fully indexed searches are
possible on accepted scientific names and synonyms, plant habit,
geographical location, altitudinal range and endemic status. The
details displayed for each taxon include the full Flora account (ie.
nomenclature, description, distribution, ecology etc.). This online
version is intended to help searching for accepted names and
synonyms across the 32 volumes of the Flora. Advanced searches
can be used to generate checklists of species for any Flora
Zambesiaca country or sub-division, or can be used to help identify
species. The database was digitised from hard copy text and is a
landmark in the provision of legacy taxonomic and floristic
information in new digital formats. Feedback would be welcome by
email to the eFloras team at fzweb at kew.org
