The southwestern Cape is home to one of the world's richest floras. From an estimated 7000 species of true fynbos, Field Guide to Fynbos describes more than 1100, focusing on the most common and conspicuous plants, with an emphasis on 'showy' flowers, or those that are most likely to be encountered. Each species, with its common names (where known), comparisons with similar species and notes on traditional uses, is accompanied by a vivid photograph, distribution map and an indication of its flowering season.
Easy-to-use keys, specially designed for logical identification, point users to the appropriate family, genus and species. For the first time, non-botanists have a real chance of accurately identifying a significant proportion of the Cape's fynbos species, making this an indispensable guide for wild-flower enthusiasts at all levels, from the recreational flower-spotter to students of the Cape Flora of South Africa.
