The article shows that the resolution and information content of the 1:5,000,000 vegetation map of Africa developed by Frank White can be directly improved by adding information from higher resolution maps available for Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Statistical evidence is provided for the existence of a distinct Afromontane phytochorion (biogeographical region).
