We at Fynbos Hub are very proud to launch our photographic library of Cape plants. The majority of the initial 584 species in 72 families featured were taken by the late Heiner Lutzeyer on Grootbos Nature Reserve (www.grootbos.com). Over the last fifteen years Heiner spent many happy days walking the hills of Grootbos, identifying and photographing the diversity of plants found in the Reserve. He provided the magnificent photos showcased in the FIELD GUIDE TO THE FLORA OF GROOTBOS NATURE RESERVE AND THE WALKER BAY REGION (Sean Privett & Heiner Lutzeyer, 2010). Heiner also discovered many rare and threatened plants including four new species for science. He was honored in 2008 by the Botanical Society of South Africa with the Flora Conservation Award for his contribution to our knowledge and the conservation of the Cape flora. His many beautiful photos can now be enjoyed on the Fynbos Hub gallery.
The photo library has been arranged alphabetically by plant family and we would welcome any contributions from other photographers who would like to contribute accurately identified plant photos to the gallery. If you would like to contribute images please send the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the plant, photographers name and location where photo was taken. You are welcome to make use of our images but please acknowledge the photographer and Fynbos Hub (www.fynbohub.co,.za) when doing so.
