    Part of the Fynbos biome, Renosterveld is one of the world’s most threatened vegetation types, with just 5% of its original extent remaining. Focusing specifically on the Renosterveld of the Overberg region in the Western Cape, this field guide is the first of its kind to cover this highly endangered ecosystem, characterised by nutrient-rich soil which has been exploited for agriculture.
     
    • An in-depth introduction sets the scene, defining what Renosterveld is and giving some historical background to the ecology of the area.
    • The plants section follows, featuring over 980 plant species from the common and ‘showy’ to the weird, obscure and often-overlooked.
    • A shorter section of 140 animal species showcases the diversity of creatures found here despite severe habitat loss and fragmentation.
    • Additional features include a glossary with supporting illustrations, guidelines for landowners and farmers, and a comprehensive index.
    Field Guide to Renosterveld of the Overberg  promises to be an enduring record of this unique and severely threatened ecosystem. It will be a vital addition to any nature lover’s bookshelf.
