Abstract

A supplementary list of 101 new records of plant species, as well as an updated alphabetical check list comprising a total of 489 plant species, were compiled for the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park. The area covers approximately 9 593 km2. These species rep- resent 214 genera and 55 families. The Pteridophyta is represented by two species (0.4 of the total number of species), the Monocotyledonae by 116 species (23.7 ) and the Dicotyledonae by 371 species (75.9 ).
