Endemic plants of Ethiopia: Preliminary working list to contribute to National plant conservation target

Tesfaye Awas (PhD)


The list of Endemic plants of Ethiopia is produced and published on our website Downlaods Page. The list was compiled from published flora books (Hedberg and Edwards, 1989; Phillips, 1995; Edwards et al., 1995, 1997 and 2000; Hedberg et al., 2003 and 2006; and Mesfin Tadesse, 2004). Only perfectly known species were considered for this list. Endemicity was considered only at species level and sub-species were not included in the list. This list could be used for collection of the rare plants of Ethiopia and contribute to national plant conservation target.
