111 Roadside Plants is different, not only in look, but also in content, and is so much more than simply a flower guide. Having written a series of flower guides for the Namib and the central part of the country to introduce some of Namibia's fascinating flora, the author has now taken a countrywide perspective. The focus of 111 Roadside Plants is on Namibia's vegetation, the distribution of plants and to providing an explanation for these patterns and associations. In doing so, I also introduce a selection of 111 plants that are commonly seen while travelling through Namibia, so 'roadside' does not necessarily refer to plants growing in the road reserve only. Many of these plants have not been covered in my previous field guides and recently produced distribution maps help to pinpoint where they can be found in the country. Thorough searches of the literature and databases on individual plants enabled me to incorporate a wealth of new information, which I hope will be of interest to readers and help provide a more global perspective. Text boxes throughout 111 Roadside Plants introduce some recent research findings relevant to Namibia's plant life. It is my wish that all of this will provide plant lovers with ample more reasons to get excited about Namibia's flora.
