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.
