AFROTROPICAL Tropical & Subtropical Savanna

Family Amaryllidaceae

Ammocharis Coranica, 'Ground lily', (Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, South Africa).

Agapanthus (Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, South Africa). If you were wondering where all that Agapanthus came from, it's from Southern Africa.

Family Mimosaceae

Acacia/Vachellia/Senegalia spp.

Earlier this century it was decided to split the old genus of Acacia into several natural groups. The majority of species in the genus are found in Australia, and so it was decided most of these retained the genus name of Acacia.

Vachellia spp. 'Acacia'

(hiding in amongst Acacia thorns)

These Acacias tend to have flowers in balls (capitate inflorescences), and spines on the stems.

Vachellia (Acacia) sieberiana, the 'Paperbark Thorn'

Senegalia spp.

These Acacias tend to have flowers in spikes (spicate inflorescences), and lack spines on the stems.

Family Malvaceae

(Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, South Africa)


(Lake Mburo, Uganda)

? Grewia.

Sterculia appendiculata. Found in tropical woodlands and riverine forest in eastern Africa.

Throughout the virus I am working in Australia on and off as local borders close, mostly in the Kimberley with Coral Expeditions (May-September). If you can't go travelling until everything settles down, then until then, here I am doing online guided walks for Noble Caledonia and online lectures for Silversea.
