Abstract: With enhanced global warming predicted to have major impacts on our flora and fauna, environmentalists are on the lookout for any signs of our flora responding to climate change. So it was with alarm that Nick Helme reported mass mortality on the north slopes of the Cradocksberg in July 2008. Further investigation by Di and Bill Turner showed that the dead patches extended from George to Engelseberg (near Robinson Pass) and in some areas were quite bad.
