How it works


The Genus Aloe contains some of the world's most important medicinal plants and is a key component of the floras of Africa, Madagascar and Arabia.This new comprehensive account of Aloes, the first to be published for more than fifty years, encompasses all 519 accepted Aloe species with their subspecies and varieties, 561 taxa altogether.

Plants are organised by their size and habit, and unambiguous keys and more than 1,700 colour illustrations facilitate their identification with speed and accuracy. Descriptions, illustrations and distinguishing features for each plant are accompanied by information on distribution, geography, habitat and relationship to other Aloe species. The history chapter tells the story of how these desirable plants were discovered and catalogued, and became the obsession of plant collectors throughout the world.
