Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Fynbos hosts 8 600 plant species, of which 5 800 are endemic, meaning that they do not occur naturally anywhere else in the world. Many of these species are rare and endangered.
Compare this with the United Kingdom, 3,5 times the size of the Cape Floral Kingdom, hosting only 1 500 plant species of which only 20 are endemic.
