Abstract in another language

When James Cook visited New Caledonia in 1774, one of the localities inspected was ‘Botany Isle’. Cook’s and Wales’s journals are used to ascertain the position of Botany Isle and draw new maps. Crew members landing on Botany Isle (including scientists Johann Forster and Georg Forster) reported seeing about 30 plant species, yet only 7–15 species were documented, either with herbarium specimens or in subsequent literature. Based on our botanical inventory of Améré, Kié and Nouaré islets, the species that may or may not have seen by the Forsters on their ‘Botany Island’ are discussed, raising nomenclatural questions. A comprehensive list of species found on these islets is provided and conservation issues discussed.
