Description:

Many of these plants are entirely dependent upon myrmecochory [= distribution of their fruits by ants] for fire survival in fynbos.
Thought to be extinct for 50 years, this plant survived precisely because it is a myrmecochore, and so had seeds securely buried in the habitat [evidence suggests that some of these might survive for centuries]. Tests in the habitat revealed that Anoplolepis steingroeveri were everywhere.
