Locality: Laas Geel Rock Art Reserve (9.780456, 44.443394)
Abstract: In August 2019, we initiated a floristic inventory of the Laas Geel Rock Art Preserve. This list includes both species for which voucher specimens are in the Biodiversity Museum to grow there and others that have been reported to be present but for which there is not, as yet, a voucher specimen. The checklist will change frequently because we have chosen to post changes, even those based on tentative identifications and identifications that are only to family or genus as they become available. In some cases, later work has suggested that we should check the identifications of some of the voucher specimens. This will be done. Enabling such checking is one of the reasons for making vocuher specimens. On a visit in May, 2021, the fence had been reinforced, but there were goats and camels inside the reserve. Because of the drought and grazing, we were only able to collect three specimens in flower. They will be added to the checklist once we have identified them.
