The vegetation of the kaitake range egmont national park new zealand

, : The vegetation of the kaitake range egmont national park new zealand. New Zealand Journal of Botany 23(1): 15-32

The results of a vegetation survey of the Kaitake Range, part of Egmont National Park, are presented. More than 90% of the vegetation is native forst, the main types represented being dominated by kohekohe (Dysoxylum spectabile), tawa (Beilschmiedia tawa), and kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa), respectively. Forest composition changes mainly with increasing altitude but also differs on the landward and coastal slopes of the range. Likely contributing environmental factors are described. An annotated list of the 270 native vascular taxa noted during the survey is included. The flora and vegetation are compared with those of the remainder of Egmont National Park and the Egmont ring plain. The Kaitake Range supports the largest remnants of lowland and semicoastal forest types which covered the Egmont ring plain before farmland development.
