Plants from Africa

When a lot of people think of Africa, they have visions of dense, steaming jungles. The reality is that this large, long continent includes many different environments from jungles to desserts to mountain areas and more. Almost all of them are either subtropical or tropical in nature with a few warm temperate zones thrown in for good measure.

Many plant species were "discovered" by European plant explorers in this region and were then introduced to the rest of the world.
