E-mail Print PDF
There is significant research being conducted on the spekboom (Portulacaria afra) in the region. This remarkable plant is unique in that it stores solar energy to photosynthesise at night. This makes spekboom thicket 10 times more effective per hectare at carbon fixing than any tropical rain forest.
