Various habitat factors influencing the fynbos vegetation of the Cape Hangklip area, such as topography, geology, soil and climate and historical features, are outlined. Data collected at 250 sampling sites are ordered using the Braun-Blanquet table method. The vegetation is subdivided into three main categories, namely coastal plain vegetation, mountain vegetation and riparian vegetation. A total of 29 communities is distinguished and related to habitat features. Aggressive introduced species which have become naturalized in the area, are also listed. A map showing the distribution of the plant communities is included.
