Southern Africa has long been recognized as a major center of diversity for the Amaryllidaceae, and this is the first comprehensive, illustrated account of the family in the region, covering all eighteen genera and more than 263 taxa. Graham Duncan provides a botanical description for each species, along with synonyms, as well as notes on distinguishing features, life cycles, distribution, habitat, cultivation, and conservation status. Maps, identification keys, color photographs, and botanical paintings by Barbara Jeppe and Leigh Voigt round out the entries, making this the definitive work on Amaryllidaceae in the region.
