The plant availability of nutrient elements differed considerably from total elemental abundances in ultramafic (serpentine) soils located in the Nelson Region of New Zealand. These ultramafic soils contained low total levels of calcium, potassium...

Serpentine soils derived from the weathering of ultramafic rocks and their metamorphic derivatives (serpentinites) are chemically prohibitive for vegetative growth. Evaluating how serpentine vegetation is able to persist under these chemical condi...

These types and forms are de...
