The phytosociology of the high altitude hygrophilous vegetation regions of the north-eastern mountain sourveld in the Transvaal, South Africa
Matthews, W. S.; Bredenkamp, G. J.; van Rooyen, N.
An analysis of the vegetation of the relatively high hygrophilous regions of the Transvaal escarpment is presented. Relevés were compiled in 53 stratified random sample plots. A TWINSPAN-classification, refined by Braun-Blanquet procedures revealed eight plant communities, which can be classified under two major communities. One class, one order, two alliances, seven associations and one community without syntaxonomic rank are newly described. All syntaxa are related to specific environmental conditions.
