Description

In January - February 2018 Petra Ballings and Bart Wursten spent 2 full weeks in the Caprivi area of Namibia. The purpose was to record and photograph as many species as possible in as many different Quarter Degree Squares as possible.

A total of 1902 records were made during this period, covering about 460 taxa.

Most of these records are now online while some still need further confirmation on ID.

Nearly 4000 photographs were taken and are in the process of being made available online.

Prior to the trip the National Botanic Research Institute in Windhoek (NBRI) was visited and through data, kindly made available by NBRI, as well as taxa recorded during the trip, the total number of taxa in our database for the Caprivi flora has risen from 889 to 1197.

As a result of this first major work both the Caprivi Checklist as well as the distribution coverage have become much more comprehensive.
