Welcome to iSpot southern Africa. Your one-stop shop for Biodiversity on the subcontinent. Please feel free to use the site for any interesting observation you may have, to document something, to obtain an ID - by adding an observation, by looking around, or more formally by using the browser (the "surfer") or the dictionary links. Please also help others by making an ID if you know something that someone else needs an ID for.

The second carousel above is global and not very useful. In order to try and re-enervate our local users to help with getting identifications made, we have created a number of projects that can achieve this.

I need to collect fresh samples of African Ixodes, and if possible include some specimens from outside of Africa. The genus is in need of a modern treatment. So I will look into a revision/key as well as their phylogenetics/evolution and distribution modeling, niche characterisation etc...

Our Fynbos is under threat again.
This time not from Urban Expansion, Agriculture or Alien Invasive Plants.

This time is is from Dogwalkers!!!

Please help us save our Critically Endangered Cape Flats Fynbos - with over 110 threatened and conservation Concern Red List Species - from an initiative by some elite Tokaaiers who want to walk their dogs in a pine plantation due to be harvested and restored back to Fynbos.
