The vegetation of the wetlands in the Grootvlei-Villiers area was investigated phytosociologically to distinguish plant communities. The results of a numerical classification (TWINSPAN) of 44 relevés, refined by Braun-Blanquet procedures, revealed ten plant communities which are classified hierarchically and which are presented in a phytosociological table. Although individual wetlands are poor in plant species, considerable variation in species composition exists among the different wetlands.
