Flora of Ethiopia and Eritrea

  • Chapter

Abstract

After several years of planning and fund-hunting the Flora of Ethiopia project was launched in 1980, funded by SAREC (Swedish Agency for Research Cooperation with Developing Countries) with the aim of producing a Flora of Ethiopia, training of Ethiopian students to Ph.D. in Systematic Botany, and strengthening the National Herbarium in Addis Ababa and its library. Four Ethiopian botanists have now received their Ph.D. in Uppsala and a considerable number of collections has been added in the National Herbarium. Vol. 3 of the Flora was published in 1989 and thanks to the combined efforts of many botanists accounts for most of the remaining families for Flora of Ethiopia are now available in a more or less finalized version.
