The Asparagus of Southern Africa
Sandie & John Burrows
The aim of this project is to completely revise the nomenclature (names) of African Asparagus species by going back to basics and revisiting all the type localities (where they were first collected) and get to understand the correct concepts for each species. It is anticipated that ± 30 new species will be described as new to science. The end product will be a comprehensive well-illustrated book covering all the known
Asparagus species in Southern and South-central Africa
A Photographic Guide to the Wild Flowers of Buffelskloof
The aim is to document and illustrate every forb occurring on, and in the vicinity of, Buffelskloof Nature Reserve. This is a long term project attempting to documen t the 860+ forbs and geoxylic suffrutices
found on or near the Reserve. Each taxon will be illustrated by at least three photographs showing its
habit along with salient features and the accompanying text kept to a minimum. So far, the pages for 128 taxa have been completed and a further 189 are in progress. Initially, the guide will be in electronic pdf format, but it is hoped to publish hard copies eventually.
