The vegetation of Dhofar
The scientific results of the Oman flora and fauna survey 1977 (Dhofar): 59-86
The vegetation of Dhofar is shown to be chiefly composed of two main elements, and eight principal environments are recognised in the province. These are described in turn, and the species found in them by the Survey are enumerated. Some of these were hitherto only imperfectly known and yet others for example the Mushat, or Saghat (Anogeissus dhofarica), even though it is a dominant tree in certain areas, have been found to be new to science. The presence of the .Baobab (Adansonia digitata) in Dhofar is confirmed. Following the descriptive part, a systematic list of species collected is presented, and a list of vernacular names is included as the Appendix.
