dc.description.abstract As part of a vegetation survey program for the newly acquired farms incorporated into the Loskop Dam Nature Reserve, the vegetation of the Hondekraal Section was investigated. The study provides an ecological basis for establishing an efficient wildlife management plan for the Reserve. From a TWINSPAN classification, refined by Braun-Blanquet procedures, 12 plant communities, which can be grouped into eight major plant communities, were identified. A classification and description of the major plant communities are presented as well as a management plan. Descriptions of the plant communities include characteristic species as well as prominent and less conspicuous species of the tree, shrub, herb and grass strata. This study proves that the extended land incorporated into the Reserve contributes to the biological diversity of the Reserve. en
