The first critical assessment of the seaweeds of tropical West Africa began during the 1960s; the first part dealing with the green algae was published by George Lawson and James Price in 1969. Over this period of almost 40 years, considerable progress has been made in our understanding of the distribution of West African seaweeds and many taxonomic and nomenclatural changes have taken place.
