dc.description.abstract After classifications and descriptions of the southern and western sections of the Borakalalo Nature Reserve were published, a study on the phytosociology of the northern part was initiated. The study is aimed at providing an ecological basis for establishing an efficient wildlife management programme for the reserve. From TWINSPAN classification, refined by Braun-Blanquet procedures, 15 plant communities, which can be grouped into six major plant communities, were identified. Descriptions of the various plant communities, include diagnostic species, prominent species and less conspicuous species of the tree, shrub, forb and grass data. A hierarchical classification, description of the plant communities and a vegetation map are presented. en
dc.description.sponsorship North-West Environmental Conservation is thanked for allowing and encouraging the research in the reserve as well as the arrangements made for the first author while doing the surveys in the veld. This research was supported financially by the Foundation for Research Development, CSIR. en
