The flora of Angola is rich, with a wide variety of habitats and several regions of high species diversity and high numbers of endemic species (those found only in Angola). However, botanically, it remains one of the least well studied countries in Africa. There is a great need to carry out plant survey work and vegetation studies throughout this exciting country. Kew is participating in several multi-national, multi-disciplinary projects that aims to identify priority sites to expand the protected areas network in Angola, and fill other knowledge gaps in the country
You can help by transcribing Angolan specimens of the mint and basil family (Lamiaceae) and allies housed in the Herbarium at Kew. This group is particularly rich in endemic species in Angola.
