  • Quicker, and more profound : prelude
    • Authors: Lee Jones
      Abstract: A year has passed since the December 2015 issue of Veld & Flora, which also means that this is the second December issue that I have had the honour of editing. Our wonderful team - the V&F Working Group have received numerous verbal and written accolades and compliments over the changes to style and content. For this we are extremely grateful and want to say "Aw shucks! Without your support, the support of the BotSoc members, the people who write the articles and the submissions, those who are the feet in the Veld and the scribes of the Flora - this journal would not be possible."

  • The politics of biodiversity conservation
    • Authors: Gavin W. Maneveldt; Gavin W. Maneveldt Ernst H.W. Baard
      Abstract: Global reports tell us that we are losing species at an unprecedented rate, estimated to be at 100 to 1,000 times greater than that of the 'natural' rate of extinction. It is now widely recognised that we will lose more species of plants and animals between 2000 and 2065 than we've lost in the last 65 million years. It is estimated, for example, that since 1970 we have already lost as much as 50% of all known marine diversity. Furthermore, one out of every three amphibian species, four mammal species, eight bird species, and an astonishing six of the seven currently recognised turtle species are now threatened with extinction. It has reached a point where international conservation specialists are talking about "The Sixth Mass Extinction", the last of which took place 65 million years ago. During that last extinction event, an estimated 16% of marine families, 47% of marine genera, and 18% of land vertebrate families, including the dinosaurs, became extinct.

  • Polycarena silenoides rediscovered : why so much ado about a 'sticky
           little scroph'?
    • Authors: Gigi Laidler
      Abstract: Living in the Cape Town area, we are fortunate to have such a spectacular playground of floral diversity in our backyard where we may indulge in botanical delights. However, Homo technologo has rapidly transformed his environment and vast areas of the world now bear absolutely no resemblance to their natural state. Modern humankind's genius and technology have provided the food and shelter that have allowed our numbers to grow but, over the centuries, these human activities have placed a rapidly increasing number of species under imminent threat of extinction and have also led to the loss of many taxa.

  • Taking care of one of the richest and most threatened habitats on Earth :
           the Overberg Renosterveld Conservation Trust
    • Authors: Odette Curtis
      Abstract: To the blissfully unaware, the softly-rolling hills covered by croplands and pastures are part of the attraction for which the Overberg is renowned. When the fields of golden-yellow Canola bloom in striking contrast with the bluegreens of barley and wheat, visitors "ooh" and "aah" over the arresting spring landscape. Yet the true life-support system in this landscape appears, at least from afar, as grey, dull, drab and isolated remnants of natural vegetation punctuating the fields of monoculture. This is lowland Renosterveld.

  • Angiosperms : learning about biodiversity
    • Abstract: Almost all land plants reproduce by means of two distinct, alternating life forms: a sexual phase that produces and releases gametes or sex cells and allows fertilisation, and a dispersal phase. The sexual phase is known as the gametophyte or haploid (n) generation and the dispersal phase is the sporophyte or diploid (2n) generation. In angiosperms and all vascular plants, the sporophyte phase is the dominant generation.

  • My fynbos garden at the tip of Africa revisited : the next decade
    • Authors: Meg Cowper-Lewis
      Abstract: Ten years ago My fynbos garden at the tip of Africa was published in the December 2006 issue of Veld & Flora. Written ten years after moving from Durban to our family home, Southermost, in Cape Agulhas and starting an indigenous garden from scratch, the article won me an award for the best article by an amateur botanist.

  • Seed bank secrets : securing seed for the future
    • Authors: Victoria Wilman
      Abstract: There are five main aspects of the work that we do at the Millennium Seed Bank: species targeting, trip planning, seed collecting, seed processing and seed storage. Our collection strategy begins with priority area targeting, based on threatened ecosystems, National Protected Area Expansion Strategy (NPAES) sites, CREW sites, and sites at risk of development. The focus areas are researched thoroughly and a target species list is compiled for each. Specific localities are found where possible, and maps, photographs, herbarium specimens and detailed descriptions make up species dossiers to take into the field. These, and a GPS, are essential for finding our target species.

  • Not with a whisper : prelude
    • Authors: Lee Jones
      Abstract: It took me many years to come to terms with the naming of plants, animals and other organisms. It was not that I found the concept of 'needing clearly distinct names to identify species' particularly difficult to understand, but the actual naming of things often did not make sense. Sometimes, it still doesn't.

  • The mystery of the missing Macowania - solved!
    • Authors: Ralph Clark; Vathiswa Zikishe, Joanne Bentley, Tony Dold Nigel Barker
      Abstract: Macowania revoluta is endemic to the beautiful Amathole Mountains in the Eastern Cape province. First collected by Peter MacOwan in the eastern Amatholes in 1868, the species was described by Joseph Hooker in Icones Plantarum (published from 1867 to 1871). This mostly southern African genus, with M. revoluta being the 'type', was taxonomically revised in 1927 by Christo Smith. We suggest the common name of Amathole Macowania for this species.

  • Gymnosperms : learning about biodiversity
    • Abstract: Gymnosperms are cone-bearing, vascular seed plants that do not bear flowers. Their 'naked seeds' develop either on the surface of scales or leaves - often modified to form cones - or at the end of short stalks as in Ginkgo. There are now around 1,000 living species of gymnosperm, although the fossil records show there were many other now-extinct species. Gymnosperms evolved about 365 million years ago and were dominant from 245 to 65 million years ago when the angiosperms took over.

    • Authors: Leslie Ward (Les) Powrie

These great men travelled around our biologically diverse country, observing the flora, fauna, fungi and other natural resources of South Africa and they collected many samples for study and classification. But first, some background ..

  • Collaboration for conservation success : Kirstenbosch and Stellenbosch
           University Botanical Garden working together
    • Authors: Anthony Hitchcock; Martin Smit Monique McQuillan
      Abstract: Originally founded in 1902, the enchanting Stellenbosch University (SU) Botanical Garden has been located at its current site, in the historical centre of Stellenbosch, since 1921. The Garden, the oldest of its kind in this country, has become a popular attraction in recent years, and is becoming progressively more self-sustainable. New initiatives are underway to resuscitate the living plant collections and to use them for display, education, research and conservation.

  • Speculation about a bizarre tree trunk
    • Authors: Charles Botha; Julia Botha
      Abstract: Close to a dirt road in the Umlalazi Nature Reserve, near the town of Mtunzini on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast, there is a strange tree stump that appears to be rooted on both sides. This curious spectacle seems to be part of a mature, adjoining Splendid Thorn Tree, (Vachellia robusta; previously known as Acacia robusta).
