The Trees of South Africa
Travel Writer: EcoTravel Africa  
 

There are more than 22 000 different species of seed plants indigenous to southern Africa. These are arranged into about 2 180 genera, which in turn form part of 227 families. Some 18 000 vascular plant species occur within South Africa's boundaries, of which 80% occur nowhere else. More plant species occur within 22 000 hectares (ha) of the Table Mountain National Park (formerly the Cape Peninsula National Park), than the whole of the British Isles or New Zealand.
