Abstract
The Cape Floristic Region (CPR) is renowned for its high plant species richness and high floristic endemism (Marloth 1929, Takahatjan, 1986, Goldblatt and Manning 2000, Linder 2003). A small number of clades (33) account for 50% of the species diversity, indicating that much of the diversification has occurred in situ, rendering it reminiscent of island archipelago radiations (Marloth 1929, Linder 2003). At a higher taxonomic level, 16.2 % of genera and four families are endemic to the area (Goldblatt et al. 2005)
