 Description  Dom is located in the Bamenda Highlands of North West Region (formerly North West Province) of Cameroon, and is home not just to several hundred people, but to several areas of forest now protected, managed, and in the process of being enlarged by the people of Dom, guided by the Bamenda-based NGO Apiculture and Nature Conservation organisation (ANCO). These protected forest areas are among the last fragments of a much greater area of forest that occurred in the Kejojang Mountains.
This book describes the 356 species and varieties of plant discovered in the forests of Dom, to enable identification of the plant species within the checklist area, in particular those threatened with extinction the highest priorities for conservation.
