dc.description.abstractA synopsis of the endemic vascular plants of three clearly defined geomorphic features namely the Soutpansberg, Blouberg and Makgabeng is provided. Biogeographically these three mountain ranges are unique comprising an interesting interchange of species amongst each other and the Central Southern African Mountainous Archipelago. The findings presented emanate from a continuously updated database (1986 onwards) of the endemic flora of the Soutpansberg, Blouberg and Makgabeng. Data was assimilated from field work and herbarium specimens as cited under voucher specimens and literature reviewed as listed under references. Forty-four endemic taxa are recorded for these three mountains belonging to 32 families and 32 genera. This wide range of families and genera also demonstrates that the endemic flora of these three mountain ranges is not resultant of a single group diversifying into a multitude of forms, but that the endemics evolved independently from several unrelated lineages. The Soutpansberg, Blouberg and Makgabeng serve as essential biological refugia and it is critical that they be conserved.en
