South Africa biomes

Year: 2011 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
South Africa is blessed with a rich abundance of biodiversity and a wide range of ecosystems and biomes. Among them are the wetland ecosystems, which occupy approximately seven per cent of South Africa’s total land area. Wetlands are regarded as one of the most productive ecosystems because of all the ecosystem services they provide. But the country’s wetlands are under pressure from both natural and human threats and approximately sixty per cent of all wetlands have already been destroyed or degraded, leading to a decrease in services provided.
