Summary
Abstract: Altitudinal variations in vegetation community composition, species ranges and foliar morphology were collected on subantarctic Marion Island.

Two altitudinal transects on the eastern slopes of the island were sampled for vegetation surface cover and physical environmental attributes, with one transect located on black lava and the other on grey lava soils. Five 1*1m quadrats were randomly ... View entire text
