Abstract

The vegetation of the farm Groothoek, Thabazimbi District, situated in the Sour Bushveld (Acocks, 1975) of the Waterberg, Transvaal, is classified according to the Braun-Blanquet method and the communities are ordinated by means of detrended correspondence analysis (DCA). Five major vegetation types with 22 communities are described in terms of habitat factors, relevant to the ordination.
