Since its inception in 1921, this serial, modelled on the former Curtis’s Botanical Magazine, has published well over 2 000 colour plates of African plants prepared by some 80 artists.

The object of the journal is to convey to the reader the beauty and variety of form of the African flora, to stimulate an interest in the study, conservation and cultivation of African plants, and to advance the science of botany as well as botanical art.

Full-colour plates and descriptions of plants appear in this biennial series, which has become a collector’s item of the South African flora. Published by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).
