Recent Additions to the Andean Flora

This listing is presented in an effort to keep workers appraised of new taxa being described from the Andes of South America. We also provide a listing of new records to the Peruvian flora subsequent to the publication of the Catalogue of the Flowering Plants and Gymnosperms of Peru (Brako & Zarucchi 1993). Our interests are focused on the Peruvian flora but we are interested in the biodiversity of the Andes in general. Anyone wishing to submit titles of publications with original descriptions of Andean plants may do so via email connection provided.
