Whether you are a landowner or a manager of a piece of natural veld in the Cape, or a visitor to this unique corner of Africa, it will not take you long to appreciate the extraordinary richness of the region. Here, spectacular mountain ranges, inland valleys, coastal areas and wetlands collectively house a unique biodiversity with global significance - so much so that large parts of it have gained World Heritage Site Status. Fynbos: Ecology and Management is a guide that will help people who visit, live, manage or own land in the Fynbos Biome to appreciate and manage its extraordinary natural richness. By tapping into the extensive knowledge of researchers and managers in the Fynbos Forum community, we have attempted to produce a practical and accessible toolkit for improving land management in the Fynbos Biome, and to share current scientific knowledge on the management of this globally significant and diverse ecosystem.
