Sedert 1984, toe die heel eerste uitgawe van Die Suid-Afrikaanse Watter Blom is Dit? gepubliseer is, was hierdie boek vir Suid-Afrikaanse tuiniers (of voornemende tuiniers) die naslaanwerk van keuse wat blomidentifikasie betref. Nou, heeltemal hersien en opgedateer deur Professor Gideon F Smith, verskyn hierdie nuwe, vierde uitgawe 15 jaar na die afsterwe van die oorspronklike outeur, professor Kristo Pienaar.

Southern Africa is the natural home of the richest and most diverse succulent flora in the world. These plants come in all shapes and sizes, from trees such as the baobab at more than 20 m tall, to miniature soil huggers, just a few millimetres high, which mimic their pebble-desert surroundings.

This user-friendly, richly illustrated field guide features more than 700 southern African succulents, focusing on the most interesting and commonly encountered species. An introduction to families and their key features will help readers identify the relevant plant group, while concise accounts describing the plants' diagnostic features, along with distribution maps, will enable quick ID of species.

More than just an ID guide for plant lovers, this book will inspire gardeners who are turning to indigenous, low-maintenance and waterwise plants for cultivation.

At three times the size of France, Central African forests are the largest tropical forest mass after the Amazon and cover a large portion of the Congo Basin, the second largest river in the world. Such forests serve as more than just an interest for biologists: they are crucially vital to countries in this area as well as populations who live off them. The pressure is therefore quite strong.

Suid-Afrika het 'n ryk flora van nagenoeg 19 000 verskillende spesies blomplante. Heelwat hiervan, veral proteas, gerberas, bloulelies en clivias, is vandag internasionaal bekend, terwyl die helderkleurige blomme van freesias, nerinas, sparaxis en tjienkerientjees gunstelinge in tuine regoor die wereld geword het. Duisende besoekers word elke jaar na die skouspel van lenteblomme in Namakwaland en die Wes-Kaap gelok. Vir die wat meer van Suid-Afrika se veldblomme wil weet, hou hierdie rykdom sy eie probleme in. Die meeste veldblomgidse dek nie veel meer as net klein dele van die land nie en die ander sluit weer te min spesies in om van veel waarde te wees. Veldblomme van Suid-Afrika is daarop gemik om hierdie tekortkominge uit die weg te ruim. Met sorg saamgestel om die veldblomme in te sluit wat waarskynlik die meeste aandag sal trek, dek hierdie landwye gids byna 900 van die mees algemene en opvallendste veldblomme wat in Suid-Afrika en die buurlande Lesotho, Swaziland en Namibie voorkom. Die keuse van spesies is die resultaat van die skrywer se baie jare ervaring in die veld. Die gebruiker-vriendelike formaat verdeel die land in drie hoof- veldblomstreke, Grasveld en Savanne, Fynbos en Namakwaland, met die spesies in elke streek gegroepeer. 'n Kitsgids verminder die opsies met een oogopslag. Elke spesie word geillustreer en beskryf, met inligting oor die volksnaam en wetenskaplike naam, habitat, blomtye en plaaslike gebruike. Soortgelyke spesies word bymekaar geplaas om vergelyking te vergemaklik en verskille word kortliks uitgewys. Geskryf en geillustreer deur professionele persone met wye ervaring van gidsboeke, is Veldblomme van Suid-Afrika die sleutel tot die ontsluiting van Suid-Afrika se veldblom-erfenis.

The fynbos region is one of the most spectacularly diverse places on Earth. This is not an idle statement. When one considers the diversity of insects, freshwater and marine species also associated with the Cape, this hotspot is arguably the hottest of all.

It is also confusingly heterogeneous, with a diversity of fine-scale habitats, from wetlands in the lowlands to seeps in the mountains, unique soil, nutrient, aspect and rainfall conditions, all of which combine to sustain and drive this diversity. Fynbos is a fire-adapted vegetation and needs fire to sustain itself: without fire the vegetation would thicken and senesce, permit trees to enter and dominate the system, and eventually exclude the precious nutrients liberated by fire and which the system depends upon for rejuvenation.

This book is a guide that will help people who visit, live, manage or own land in the Fynbos Biome to appreciate and manage its extraordinary natural richness.

Die fynbosstreek is een van die skouspelagtigste uiteenlopende plekke op Aarde. Dit is nie 'n ligtelike bewering nie. Wanneer mens die verskeidenheid insekte asook vars- en seewaterspesies wat ook met die Kaap assosieer is, in aanmerking neem, mag hierdie brandpunt een van die warmste ter wêreld wees.

Dit is verwarrend uiteenlopend, met 'n verskeidenheid kleinskaalhabitats, van vleilande in die laagtes tot sypelings in die berge en unieke grond-, voedings-, aspek- en reënvaltoestande, wat almal saamspan om hierdie verskeidenheid te onderhou en te dryf. Fynbos is 'n plantegroeitipe wat by vuur aangepas is (net soos grasvelde en savannes), en benodig vuur om voort te bestaan: sonder vuur sal die plantegroei te dig raak en verouder, bome sal daarin slaag om die stelsel binne te dring en te oorheers, en mettertyd sal kosbare voedingstowwe wat deur vuur vrygestel word en waarvan die stelsel afhanklik is om te verjong, nie meer beskikbaar wees nie.

Hierdie boek is 'n gids om besoekers, inwoners, bestuurders of eienaars van grond in die Fynbosbioom te help om dié uitsonderlike rykdom te waardeer en te bestuur.

Gids tot die aalwyne van Suid-Afrika is die eerste volledige en moderne aalwyngids in Afrikaans. Dit is 'n volkleur-handleiding en die hoë gehalte foto's maak dit vir die algemene belangstellende sowel as die wetenskaplike maklik om aalwyne in die natuur en in tuine te identifiseer. Die inhoud weerspieël die nuutste wetenskaplike bevindings en bevat:

- Volledige beskrywings van al 155 spesies wat tans deur aalwynkenners erken word, met inligting oor kenmerke waarvolgens die plante geïdentifiseer kan word, blomtyd, habitat en geografiese verspreiding, bewaringstatus, oorsprong van die wetenskaplike name, en volksname, asook algemene riglyne vir die kweek van die plante, en inligting oor hul tradisionele gebruike.
- Meer as 400 kleurfoto's wat die habitat en groeivorm aantoon, sowel as nabyfoto's van die blomme en blare.
- Verspreidingskaarte van al die spesies, as 'n verdere hulpmiddel vir identifisering.
- 'n Gebruikersvriendelike klassifikasiestelsel wat die aalwyne in 12 groepe verdeel, hoofsaaklik aan die hand van hul groeivorms.
- Inleidende hoofstukke wat die fokus plaas op aalwynagtige plante (wat met aalwyne verwar kan word); medisinale, kosmetiese en tonikumgebruike; bewaring; kweking en vermeerdering; tuinmaak en landskapontwerp met aalwyne; hibriede en kultivars, plae en siektes; en verwantskappe en genuskonsepte.
- 'n Geïllustreerde woordelys van plantkundige terme, indeks tot die wetenskaplike en volksname, asook 'n literatuurlys vir verdere leeswerk.
