Flora of Tropical East Africa


A descriptive account of the flowering plants and ferns native and naturalised in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, together with information on exotic ornamental and crop plants. At least one species in each genus is illustrated, and the bibliography and synonymy are sufficiently detailed to explain nomenclature and taxonomic circumscriptions within a broad regional context. The Flora is a part work published in paperback fascicles.
The ’Malvaceae’ includes the genera Pavonia, Hibiscus and Abutilon.
