A floristic classification of shoreline vegetation around Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe

A floristic study was undertaken to classify the vegetation that has colonized the shoreline of Lake Kariba since its creation in 1958-1963. Ten vegetation types were distinguished and described floristically and physiognomically.
