List of families

Welcome to the main entry page. The purpose of this part of the site is to provide detailed information about the vascular plant species of the Mozambique flora.

All families, genera and species which are purely cultivated in Mozambique are excluded. Checklists of cultivated plants are available on the List of cultivated plants page.

There are 3 columns of information.

  1. The first column is a series of links to the families. Click on a link to enter the family pages.
  2. The purpose of the second column, which is headed 'Content', is to indicate in a simple way whether there is any content for that particular family. Specifically, it indicates whether the family description has been done and whether there is a sample image for the family.
  3. The third column provides links to the genera and species laid out in a checklist format.

It must be emphasised that, unlike the Zimbabwe flora site, the list of taxa on the Mozambique site is significantly incomplete.

Click on a letter below to take you to the first family whose name begins with that letter.
