        This study was designed to produce regional distribution maps of all species of woody
bamboos occurring in Africa; North, Central and South America. Qualitative data on
distribution of woody bamboos were combined with data on existing forest cover. In
the course of the study, 378 individual bamboo species and subspecies, and 32 genera
of Bambuseae were mapped. The highest figures of potential species richness (35 spp
per square km) were recorded in Sao Paulo State, Brazil.
