An Assessment of the Distribution and Conservation Status of Endemic and Near Endemic Plant Species in Maputaland
The Maputaland Centre of Endemism (MCE), an area stretching from northern-east KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa to the Limpopo River in southern Mozambique, holds more than 2,500 native plant species. Of those, over 203 are endemic or near endemic to this area. However, the current high human population density in MCE, coupled with high population growth, has increased the pressure on the natural resources of the region and threatens the natural vegetation and plant diversity.
