Abstract: An awareness has developed in recent years of the importance of studying the wild plants of the Peninsular regions in general and Saudi Arabia in particular. As a result of this, a considerable number of publications have appeared in recent years in the fields of Plant Taxonomy and Plant Geography. Many of these findings have changed our floristic knowledge to a certain extent.Flora of Saudi Arabia by Migahid is the only concise work covering all parts of Saudi Arabia. Although incomplete and containing errors, this work is still used as the main reference book for research and teaching. As studies on the flora and allied subjects are one of the primary steps in the process of development, incorrect identification of a plant or group of plants not only misleads but also devalues the observations. Therefore an attempt has been made to correct and update the third edition of Flora of Saudi Arabia (1988-1990).
