Abstract:
The present work examines the angiosperm diversity of Bowen University, Iwo. Conventional methods of species enumeration as described by previous authors were employed and a comprehensive record of the existing species compiled. A total of 110 species in 96 genera and 42 families were recorded. Asteraceae, Euphorbiaceae and Poaceae were dominant with 10, 8 and 8 species, respectively. The trees also constituted the highest number with 47 species (42.72%). Further findings showed that 84 genera were represented with only 1 species each while others had 2 species each except Ficus with 4 species. This work suggests a look at the posible establishment of arboretum for ex-situ conservation within the study area.
