Lupins of the Mediterranean region and Africa
Twelve European and African species of Lupinus are recognized, including one new species L. atlanticus. A key is given, followed by a more detailed description of each species, its synonymy, and comments on its natural distribution, ecology, and range of variability. Selected herbarium specimens in the collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (all seen by the author) are cited for each taxon. The possible phylogenetic history of lupins in the Mediterranean region and Africa is discussed.
