A taxonomic and nomenclatural revision of the collections made by two Danish botanists between 1783 and 1803 - at a time when little was known of the tropical African flora. The species are arranged alphabetically by family and genus under their currently recognized botanical name, with relevant synonyms, vernacular names, translations of field and economic notes, and a place-name gazetteer.
