The map of potential natural vegetation of eastern Africa gives the distribution of potential natural vegetation in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi and Zambia.

The map is based on a reconstruction of the pre-colonial vegetation using historical national and local vegetation maps in combination with input from leading experts and an extensive literature review. The assumption is made that the pre-colonial vegetation represents a close approximation of the current PNV.
