Abstract

The mountainous area surrounding Hasik is renown from antiquity as one of the areas where the frankincense tree, Boswellia sacra, grows in abundance. However, the botanical knowledge of this area is limited since up to 2003, Hasik had remained isolated due to the absence of a connecting road with Habdin. The construction of a road has allowed reaching the Hasik area, studying the Boswellia sacra populations on the mountains surrounding this small town, and carrying out floristic collections both in the Boswellia sacra area, and inside some small coastal wadis. The floristic list includes 93 taxa; among these Schweinfurthia pedicellata is new to Oman, while Convolvulus ulicinus, Limonium sarcophyllum, and Tephrosia subtriflora are new to Dhofar
