Vegetation map for eastern Africa 2.0

Check out the new vegetation map and accompanying tools for identifying and selecting the right tree for the right place in eastern Africa at http://vegetationmap4africa.org.

The potential natural vegetation (PNV) map of eastern and southern Africa covers the countries Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zambia. The first version of the map was developed by various partners in East Africa and Europe in 2010 and has now reached version 2.

The map is available in different formats and is accompanied by an extensive documentation of the floristic, physiognomic and other characteristics of the different vegetation types and useful woody species in the 8 countries.

The new map was launched yesterday at the XIV World Forestry Congress. ‪#‎Forests2015‬
