Abstract
In the early 1930's the preparation by the staff of the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, of a Flora for Tropical East Africa was mooted. The area to be covered by the flora was Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika and Zanzibar. However, the project had to be abandoned because money was not forthcoming from the United Kingdom or East African governments and nothing further was done until 1947 when a body of distinguished biologists, under the chairmanship of the late Sir Frank Stock dale, was appointed by the Colonial Research Committee to consider the practicability and desirability of forming a Colonial Biological Survey.
