This Red List is a major milestone for South Africa in that it is the first data-driven, comprehensive assessment of the country's indigenous vascular flora. South Africa is among 17 megadiverse countries that collectively hold 70% of the world's plant species diversity. It is the first among these countries to do a comprehensive assessment of the status of its flora. This landmark publication indicates that 13% of South Africa's plant species are threatened with extinction and that one in every four plants is of conservation concern. This is the first South African plant Red List to include detailed information on all plant species of conservation concern as well as a comprehensive analysis of threats to the South African flora. Guidelines for the application of this Red List are provided for conservation practitioners. Many species are depicted in colour photographs scattered throughout the text.
