The vegetation associated with the macro-channel of the Olifants River System was investigated to identify plant communities mappable at a spatial scale of 1:250 000. The results obtained by using the PHYTOTAB PC-classification and mapping program package, revealed eight distinct plant communities associated with the macro-channel of this river system that occurs within the Grassland Biome.
