Bothalia, which has served the South African botanical community since its inception in 1921, is changing its name. The new subtitle, African Biodiversity & Conservation, reflects the expanded mandate of the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) in the biodiversity sciences. Bothalia's rich scientific history of covering South Africa's fauna and flora will henceforth include content on African biodiversity under the Bothalia - African Biodiversity & Conservation umbrella. The geographical coverage of the journal will reflect issues relating to biodiversity on the African content.

Editor-in-Chief: Michelle Hamer, Director: Zoological Systematics, South African National Biodiversity Institute, South Africa.

Financial support and affiliation: South African National Biodiversity Institute (South Africa).
