Die fynbosstreek is een van die skouspelagtigste uiteenlopende plekke op Aarde. Dit is nie 'n ligtelike bewering nie. Wanneer mens die verskeidenheid insekte asook vars- en seewaterspesies wat ook met die Kaap assosieer is, in aanmerking neem, mag hierdie brandpunt een van die warmste ter wêreld wees.

Dit is verwarrend uiteenlopend, met 'n verskeidenheid kleinskaalhabitats, van vleilande in die laagtes tot sypelings in die berge en unieke grond-, voedings-, aspek- en reënvaltoestande, wat almal saamspan om hierdie verskeidenheid te onderhou en te dryf. Fynbos is 'n plantegroeitipe wat by vuur aangepas is (net soos grasvelde en savannes), en benodig vuur om voort te bestaan: sonder vuur sal die plantegroei te dig raak en verouder, bome sal daarin slaag om die stelsel binne te dring en te oorheers, en mettertyd sal kosbare voedingstowwe wat deur vuur vrygestel word en waarvan die stelsel afhanklik is om te verjong, nie meer beskikbaar wees nie.

Hierdie boek is 'n gids om besoekers, inwoners, bestuurders of eienaars van grond in die Fynbosbioom te help om dié uitsonderlike rykdom te waardeer en te bestuur.

Karoo Veld outlines veld management and assessment approaches for a wide geographical area of arid South Africa, from the vygie veld of Namaqualand, through the Great Karoo to the grassier eastern Karoo. It will assist the practical and ambitious land user to apply ecologically friendly veld management and to evaluate the effects of grazing and restoration on the veld. The book will interest prospective land users who need to estimate the potential and suitability of land for a new enterprise before making the investment, as well as anyone who is curious about the Karoo and its plants and animals.

The book is generously illustrated with colour photos, figures and maps. Separate sections deal with Karoo veld ecology, veld management and veld assessment and monitoring. Appendices provide useful information on palatability of common Karoo plants, invasive alien weeds, Large Stock Unit equivalents for small stock and game and a brief picture reference guide to the more common Karoo plants.

The fynbos region is one of the most spectacularly diverse places on Earth. This is not an idle statement. When one considers the diversity of insects, freshwater and marine species also associated with the Cape, this hotspot is arguably the hottest of all.

It is also confusingly heterogeneous, with a diversity of fine-scale habitats, from wetlands in the lowlands to seeps in the mountains, unique soil, nutrient, aspect and rainfall conditions, all of which combine to sustain and drive this diversity. Fynbos is a fire-adapted vegetation and needs fire to sustain itself: without fire the vegetation would thicken and senesce, permit trees to enter and dominate the system, and eventually exclude the precious nutrients liberated by fire and which the system depends upon for rejuvenation.

This book is a guide that will help people who visit, live, manage or own land in the Fynbos Biome to appreciate and manage its extraordinary natural richness.
