  • Abstract:

    South Africa is often thought of as 'well-explored' and 'well-studied'. The exciting thing is that it's not - especially if you add 'biodiversity' and 'mountains' to your search engine. The Cape Midlands Escarpment, for example (comprising the Sneeuberg, Great Winterberg-Amatholes and Stormberg, mostly in the Eastern Cape province, South Africa) has seen numerous plant discoveries and rediscoveries since 2005. This has been the direct result of focused biodiversity exploration in this region.
