Project & Partners

This photo guide started in 2008 as a result of field work on West African plant diversity performed within the project BIOTA-West Africa, and later SUN and UNDESERT and is continuously updated since. Many photographers have contributed their photos to further improve scope and functionality. So we could expand the geographical scope to cover Central and East Africa in 2010 and the whole African continent (excluding Madagascar) in 2014.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous contributions of numerous co-workers who provided their photographs (list below). If you would like to contribute quality photos (with locality data) please contact us.

Main participating institutions are indicated by their logos (see below). Please visit their homepages to find out more.
