Title A checklist of seed plants of Mount Kenya, East Africa
Description This is a comprehensive checklist of seed plants based on data from various scientific expeditions to Mount Kenya since the 1900s. These data sources include published floras and field guides such as Flora of Tropical East Africa, Upland Kenya Wild Flowers and Ferns, Wild Flowers of East Africa and Kenya Trees Shrubs and Lianas, data of specimens from East African Herbarium, Nairobi, Kenya (EA) and Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF, https://www.gbif.org/), and data from our own scientific expedition from 2009 to 2016 (specimens were stored at Herbarium of Wuhan Botanical Garden, Wuhan, China, HIB). Species were assigned to vegetation zones according to the sampling locations and habitat descriptions described in the monographs. Growth forms of species were classified as either woody or herbaceous plants.
