Montane 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. Although not much distinguishes lowland and montane fynbos, montane fynbos occurs on the mountains of the Cape Folded Belt.
