Does soil determine the boundaries of monodominant rain forest with adjacent mixed rain forest and maquis on ultramafic soils in New Caledonia

Read, Jennifer; Jaffre, T; Ferris, J M; McCoy, S; Hope, Geoffrey


Aim: To determine the soil characteristics of Nothofagus-dominated rain forests in an ultramafic region (i.e. soils having high concentrations of metals including Mg, Fe and Ni), and whether soil characteristics may explain the location of monodominant rain forest in relation to adjacent mixed rain forest and maquis (shrub-dominated vegetation). Location: New Caledonia. Methods: Soil characteristics were compared among six Nothofagus-dominated rain forests from a range of altitudes and...[Show more]
