Preliminary syntaxonomic scheme of vegetation classes for the Central Bushveld of South Africa
MetadataShow full item record
Data from 29 vegetation studies done in the socalled Central Bushveld, South Africa (a large region N and NW of Pretoria), were subject to syntaxonomic synthesis using TWINSPAN and further refined with traditional tablesorting procedures of the floristic-sociological approach to classification of vegetation. The analysis revealed four major groups of communities, interpreted at this stage as zonal vegetation classes which we preliminarily name: Commiphoromollis-Colophospermetea mopani, Panico maximi-Acaciatea tortilis, Terminalio sericeae-Combretetea apiculati and Englerophyto magalismontani-Acacietea caffrae.
