This online flora provides access to all published volumes of the Flore d’Afrique Centrale. It covers about 6,000 vascular plant taxa from the Democratic Republic Congo, Rwanda and Burundi.

You will find many details of the plants of Central Africa including:-

  • Scientific names and synonyms
  • Illustrations and descriptions
  • Local names of plants
  • Location and habitat information
  • Ethnobotany

Also included are keys to the genera and species.

The Flore d’Afrique Centrale has been published since 1948 and has been digitised from the paper volumes. Errors produced by the digitisation have been corrected, but apart from a few exceptions the text in the online version is identical to the original version. The only things that have been changed are obvious spelling mistakes in the original and the authorities of scientific names have been standardised against Brummitt and Powell’s Authors of Plant Names (1992).
