About the book
Tropical forests are objects of increasing interest as we realise more and more their importance for the global environment. Forestry studies in Uganda have so far solely been focused on trees, despite the fact that forest floor plants have the advantage of easy access.
This report is the result of a project carried out in several forests in Western Uganda and Eastern Zaire from 1994 to 1996. The aim of the project was to assess patterns of botanical diversity within and between forests in Western Uganda. The main emphasis was on the ground herbs, especially the ferns. The most significant output at this stage is the documentation of species. Appendices list the diversity of species for each Ugandan site.
