An on­line search for in­for­ma­tion on the veg­e­ta­tion of iSi­man­gliso Wet­land Park pro­duced a brief doc­u­ment stat­ing, inter alia, that the flora in the park is ‘di­verse, hav­ing 152 fam­i­lies, 734 gen­era and 2 173 species. A to­tal of 98 per cent of Ma­puta­land Cen­tre species, about nine per cent of the flora of South Africa and 31 per cent of the flora of KwaZulu-Na­tal, have been recorded in the park’ (Scott-Shaw, 1994). www.isi­man­gal­isonews.word­press.com/2009/10/05/isi­man­gal­iso-veg­e­ta­tion
