The ecology of Becium homblei in central Africa with special reference to metalliferous soils



The ecology of Becium homblei in central Africa with special reference to metalliferous soils



J. Ecol 58: 745-763



Becium homblei is able to tolerate soil-Cu concentrations of up to 15 000 ppm and soil-Ni concentrations of nearly 5000 ppm. It is also found where soil metals are in trace quantities and soil bases, particularly Ca, are low. Despite its tolerance of varied edaphic conditions, its distribution in Rhodesia is restricted due to competition of Becium obovatum which is common on more 'normal'soils.
