Review By: African Wildlife

The Cape Fold Mountains are home to the Cape Floral Region - one of only six Floral Kingdoms in the world. More than 9000 different plant species grow naturally in this small area, and nearly 70 percent of them are endemic. This guide covers over 400 of the species of restios, ericas, proteas, annuals, herbs, shrubs and bulbs. Each species is illustrated and described, with information on its common and scientific names, habitats, distribution maps, flowering times and local uses. Introductory chapters cover the Cape Floral Region and the birds, insects, spiders, reptiles and mammals that also make their home there.

The guide also provides information on national parks, nature reserves and other prime flower-viewing destinations in this area.
