Bibliography: p. 220.This study investigates the value of small nature reserves of less than 100 ha. The biological, recreational and educational values of small nature reserves in general are assessed and management for multiple-use activities is considered. A specific example, the 35 ha urban reserve, the Palmiet Nature Reserve in Westville, Natal, is evaluated in terms of the biological communities, visitor attitudes and their reasons for going into this Reserve, use by educational institutions, management and problems. Recommendations for improving the potential of the Palmiet Nature Reserve for both conservation and multiple-use activities are suggested. Changes in the Nature Conservation Ordinance in Natal to accommodate local nature reserves are recommended. Finally the justification for establishing small nature reserves is considered
