We gratefully acknowledge the distinguished specialists working on various plant groups for critically reviewing of some species determinations (their names appear in the legends of photographs).

I am particularly grateful to R. Douzet, botanist at the Joseph Fourier alpine station, and S. Aubert, the Director of Joseph Fourier alpine station, respectively for their contribution to the translation of the original Latin diagnosis published by R. Maire and the Spanish texts. I wish also special thank R. Douzet, his encounter was the occasion to fruitful exchanges and sharing of general ideas on the Moroccan Flora.

Thanks to Jalal El Oualidi, Mohamed Fennane et M. Ibn Tattou for affording me acces to the Institute scientific Herbarium. Thanks for offering valuable advice and suggestions.

I would like to show a particular gratitude to two colleagues and friends – Professor Dr A. El Aboudi, Rabat University and Professor Dr F. Msanda, Agadir University - who travelled with me in the field during these last 20 years, without their help I could not have known south-west Morocco as well as I do.
