Approximately 40 ha of saltmarsh exist around the Uilkraals River. The distribution patterns of species in these marshes are described and compared with patterns found in other marshes in the Western Cape. The marshes might superficially resemble a mosaic of species, but each element of the mosaic could be compared with vegetation in other systems. Peculiar salinity and tidal features are postulated as having a great influence on species distributions at this river.
