Vegetation patterns in response to environmental stress and disturbance in the Papua New Guinea highlands


Mountain Research and Development 5(4): 329-338
Vegetation patterns in response to environmental stress and disturbance in the Papua New Guinea highlands
A general description is given of the regional vegetation. Varied montane forests are extensive reaching 3750-3900 m alt., above which mountain grasslands occur. Forests have been cleared over large areas and are often replaced by gardens, both actively used and fallow. The early forest regrowth in many fallow areas is repeatedly burned leading to soil and vegetation degradation.
