Lowland fynbos and renosterveld

WWF Abstract

Located at the southwest tip of Africa lies the Cape Floral Kingdom, comprised of both the lowland and montane fynbos and renosterveld ecoregions. With about 8,500 different species of plants, 70% of which are found nowhere else on earth, it has been designated as one of the six plant kingdoms of the world. For its small size, it is one of the richest places in the world. Lowland fynos (known as sand plain fynbos) occurs on the deep acid sands of the west coast lowlands from 5 to 300 m.
