This homepage is dedicated to Dr. Colette Cusset (Paris).
She described in Africa two new monotypic genera (Djinga, Zehnderia) and 18 new species of already known genera. Moreover she rearranged and renamed additional 35 species of this continent. Many illustrations of African Podostemaceae are due to Madame Cusset. Without her lifelong effort we would know much less about this enigmatic family in Africa and Madagascar.
