... In RoC, there is a published inventory for the vascular flora of the Republic of Congo (Sita and Moutsambote (1988)), which provides a list of 4397 species (198 families and 1338 genera), but with the vast majority being forest species and no indication of their distribution. This inventory has been slightly updated since then, with 84 species added by Champluvier and Dowsett-Lemaire (1999), and 64 by Lachenaud (2009). More usefully, there is an illustrated list of plants of the Lesio Louna and Lefini reserves, which are major reserves covering 6% of the Bateke Plateau, that list 457 species belonging to 119 families (Nsongola et al. 2006). ...

To this list of 4,397 species, 84 were added by Champluvier & Dowsett-Lemaire (1999) in their annotated list of vascular plant species of Odzala National Park, new for the Republic of Congo. The most recent compilation was published by Lachenaud (2009), who added 64 species to the flora, bringing it to 4,538 species, and who indicated that this figure is probably an overestimate due to the presence of synonyms in the list of Sita and Moutsamboté (1988). ...
