Sclerosperma and Podococcus in Gabon

Sclerosperma and Podococcus in Gabon

This paper focuses on some supposedly well known understory palms Sclerosperma
and Podococcus. However, upon closer examination, the forest of Gabon once
again reveals two botanical treasures, Sclerosperma walkeri and Podococcus acaulis,
that had remained hidden in some long forgotten French periodicals.
