SANBI Graphics & Editing


SANBI Graphics & Editing is a products-oriented, graphic design, botanical art and editing services unit founded on a fully qualified and skilled staff complement. The unit provides a diverse range of high quality print and electronic media to SANBI at all levels as well as external clients.

SANBI Graphics & Editing produces the biennial journal Flowering Plants of Africa as well as the three SANBI monograph series: SANBI Biodiversity Series, Strelitzia and the newest addition to the range, Suricata, which focusses on zoological rather than botanical research. Ad hoc publications as well as information and marketing material are also produced at the request of SANBI programmes and projects.
