Biotic Diversity in Southern Africa—Concepts and Conservation. Initially, my work on the Burseraceae was purely taxonomic, but in recent years I have expanded into the molecular systematics, biogeography, pollen morphology, germination patterns, seedling morphology, and leaf architecture of the group, plus fruit dispersal, due in large part to stimulating collaborations with graduate students and.

This book provides a selective annotated bibliography of the principal floras and related works of inventory for vascular plants.

The second edition was completely updated and expanded to take into account the substantial literature of the late twentieth century, and features a more fully developed review of the history of floristic.

Biodiversity inventory as a tool for guiding conservation planning at a local scale is under used, especially in tropical countries where technical capacity is often limited. Here four inventory protocols (one ad hoc, one fixed count and two fixed area methods) are tested for their efficiency and statistical robustness when applied to the.
