Abstract: A scheme of major categories of the vegetation in and adjacent to the fynbos biome is given as a second approximation after Acocks1 Veld Types (1953). A four tier hierarchy is presented with nineteen categories of vegetation. The major subdivisions recognized on the basis of their structural, environmental and floristic characteristics are: Cape Fynbos Shrublands; a mosaic of Cape Fynbos Shrublands and Subtropical elements; Cape Transitional Small-Leafed Shrublands; Cape Transitional Large-Leafed Shrublands; Subtropical Transitional Thicket; Afromontane Forest; and Karroid Shrublands. In addition a vegetation map on which these categories were recognized was produced independently using Landsat imagery.
