The purpose of this study was to do a (preliminary) survey of the distribution of the species of the genus Aloe in the south of South West Africa. All avaiIable physical and biotic data were collected to compile the distribution map of the various species. The relative density of each of the different species was also determined. A complete background study was made to search for additional information which may help to explain the distribution patterns.
