Flora of Mozambique

Meg Coates Palgrave joins the team

The Zimbabwe and Mozambique flora teams are very pleased to welcome Meg Coates Palgrave as a member of both teams. The name Coates Palgrave is very well known in southern Africa because of the family's publications about trees, such as Trees of Southern Africa, and Meg brings a deep knowledge and wide experience of trees in the region. For the last 10 years or so she has been involved in establishing the Cheringoma herbarium at Catapu in Mozambique, from which many records have been added to the website. Indeed, she is already an active contributor to the site and details of her records and images may be found here.
