Vegetation data from the Kroonstad area were analysed. The entire data set (235 releves) was subdivided into two tabulation subsets by TWINSPAN classification, followed by Braun-Blanquet procedures. One subset, representing the vlei and bottomland vegetation, was classified further by Braun-Blanquet procedures. Eight communities, grouped into four major communities, were identified and described. The results can be integrated with existing phytosociological classifications of the north-western

Die totale datastel (235 releves) is in twee subdatastelle verdeel, met behulp van 'n TWINSPAN klassifikasie, gevolg deur die Braun-Blanquet prosedure. Een subdatastel wat die plantegroei van die vleie en laaglande verteenwoordig, is verder deur middel van die Braun-Blanquet prosedure geklassifiseer. Agt plantgemeenskappe, wat vier hoofgemeenskappe verteenwoordig, is onderskei en bespreek. Die resultate kan ge'integreer word met bestaande fitososiologiese klassifikasies van die noord-westelike Oranje-Vrystaat.
