A detailed checklist of the Rubiaceae (coffee family) occurring naturally on the islands of Bioko and Annobon (Equatorial Guinea, Gulf of Guinea) is presented, based on herbarium collections deposited in the herbaria of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and The Natural History Museum, London. The checklist comprises 58 genera and 147 species, including six new generic records and 26 new infrageneric records. The total number of native Rubiaceae species occurring in Bioko is 139; three entities do not have formal names and probably represent new taxa. In Annobon there are 12 native genera and 13 indigenous species of Rubiaceae. The conservation status of two endemic species is assessed using IUCN criteria and it is proposed that they are considered Vulnerable.

This article assesses the changing nature of the contemporary political economy of Equatorial Guinea. It provides an overview of the complex and dynamic web of elite rent-generation and explores the extent to which the development of an oil industry has contributed to a monoculture of accumulation. It is concluded that, despite the oil windfall, other, ‘illicit’, modes of elite rent-generation persist and have even intensified.

This article outlines the rise of Equatorial Guinea as one of Africa’s leading oilproducing countries and investigates the political, economic and social effects of becoming a petro-state. The article is based on the author’s field research in Equatorial Guinea in the autumn of 2003 and interviews with senior oil company staff, government officials and staff of international organizations as well as secondary sources. This research demonstrates how reliance on oil and gas exports can lead to profound changes in a country’s political economy.
