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.

The principal contributors to the site are Bart Wursten, Petra Ballings, Stefaan Dondeyne, Sune Holt, Meg Coates Palgrave and Mark Hyde.

As of today, Wednesday, 23 August 2017, we have 5,915 native or naturalised species in the database for Mozambique. There are 22,726 images for 3,225 species, of which 3,159 are native or naturalised and 66 are purely cultivated.

The Site history page gives details of the latest additions to the site. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions page.
