The Southern African Botanical Diversity Network - SABONET - is a GEF Project aimed at developing botany in southern Africa. The network connected and developed southern African herbaria, botanic gardens, botanists and other plant specialists through workshops, courses, and funding. SABONET also published a newsletter, SABONET News, and books in the SABONET Report Series with information on southern African plant biodiversity and rare and threatened plants, including checklists of the plants of Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

SABONET started in 1996 and came to a close at the beginning of 2005. This website is an archive of the project's achievements, and includes information on the people who made it work, the countries and institutions who formed part of the network, as well as downloadable versions of the many books and newsletters that were published during the lifespan of the project.
