Explanatory Notes
Soil texture information is only recorded for the top 5cm of soil at the survey site, plant litter cover refers to the % of area covered by leaves, twigs or bark, structural formation according to the SA Structural Vegetation Formation (Heard & Channon, 1997)

Botanical Abbreviations
? = identification uncertain, * = introduced plant species, var. = variety, ssp. = subspecies, gp = group, nothossp. = hybrid of a subspecies, - = integrade, x = hybrid (secondary intergrade), sp. = identification possible only to genus level

Taxonomic Clarification Required
'plant species' = names in inverted commas indicate that taxonomic changes have occurred since the survey and that subsequent research is required to positively identify this species
(SYN) = indicates that the plant species name used is a synonym name
(NC) = indicates that the plant species is a non valid name which has been superseded by taxonomic changes

**Cover Abundance Codes
R - Solitary plant
T - sparsely present; cover small (less than 5%)
1 - plentiful, but of small cover (less than 5%)
2 - any number of individuals covering 5 - 25% of the area
3 - any number of individuals covering 25 - 50% of the area
4 - any number of individuals covering 50 - 75% of the area
5 - covering more than 75% of the area
