For families treated in Conspectus Florae Angolensis (CFA), we attempt to provide for each taxon its distribution by province. Distribution is based on the specimens listed in CFA but taking into account the current provincial boundaries. Only synonyms relevant to the area are included in the dataset. Names already listed in CFA as synonyms are mostly omitted. For most taxa, information on their status (i.e. accepted or not) in Klopper et al. (2006) is given. When there is a discrepancy in the taxonomic treatments between tropical and southern Africa, as reflected in Klopper et al. (2006), the taxon was considered as accepted. The status in the database of Kew World Checklists is also given for some families. Since that database is regularly updated, the information presented here refers to the period when the projet was developed (2006-2007).

Resources for botanical research in Angola

This website is the most comprehensive online resource available for the flora of Angola. The data thus far have been compiled with input from 32 contributors, based initially on the book Plants of Angola (Figueiredo & Smith 2008). These data include all taxa known to occur in Angola, synonyms, species descriptions and distribution data, type specimens (most types from Angola are included), data from other representative specimens, images and literature.

Not all families have been critically assessed. The data rather reflect our present knowledge of the diversity of the flora of Angola. For consistency with other works published in southern Africa, family delimitation mostly follows Klopper et al. (2006).
