Checklist of the Flowering Plants of Afghanistan (CoAF)

In 2012, Prof. Dietrich Podlech compiled a Checklist of the Flowering plants of Afghanistan and made it available online. It listed, for each species, the districts of Afghanistan where it was known to grow. The data in CoAF were obtained by extracting the distributional information from that checklist. Contact information is for Mary Barkworth who apologizes for any errors in the presentation. For questions about the checklist, contact Prof. Podlech (podlech symbol
