Summary South Africa's Greater Cape Floristic Region has intrigued biologists for centuries. It has achieved iconic status as a locus of megadiversity - a place to study the ecological underpinnings of massive evolutionary radiations in fynbos and associated vegetation types. Advances over the past two decades in unravelling the complexities of GCFR ecology and evolution are presented. The region has yielded significant contributions on adaptive radiations of large lineages, conservation science, pollination biology, invasive plant biology, and palaeoanthropology
