  F. Médail, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, Main Ecosystem Types. The vegetation types usually considered as ‘typically Mediterranean’ are the evergreen and sclerophyllous shrublands or heathlands, named maquis and garrigue in the Mediterranean Basin, chaparral in California, matorral in Chile, fynbos in SW Africa, kwongan and mallee in SW Australia. Fynbos represents the most species‐rich extratropical vegetation anywhere on the globe. Thus, it is extreme good fortune for all scientists interested in plant species patterns in megadiverse landscapes that 2 new publications have recently been published. Plant Life on .

Many types of mammals, birds and insects play a role in fynbos pollination and dispersal. Since the ’s there has been a huge interest in fynbos research amongst the scientific community that has yielded a remarkable body of scientific literature. This is a unique study that documented the flora on the hectare nature reserve in all seasons and during all stages of post fire regrowth.

Fynbos is a small belt of natural shrubland or heathland vegetation located in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape provinces of South Africa. This area is predominantly winter rainfall coastal and mountainous areas with a Mediterranean climate.

The fynbos ecoregion is within the Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub biome. In fields related to biogeography, fynbos is known for its. The climate has an equally important effect on the mountain’s plants and animals.

The amount of rainfall, shade and shelter from the wind has a profound effect on the environment that can easily be seen: hike up Table Mountain’s south-east facing slopes and you’ll be in thick indigenous forest or head-high fynbos.

The 15 chapters are based on invited papers at a colloquium held in Franschhoek, South Africa, 30 June-1 Julyand review and synthesize research largely coordinated by the Fynbos Biome Project. Topics covered include biogeography, ecology, management and a global perspective.
