Description
The atlas shows the known distribution and abundance of each vascular species on Macquarie Island immediately prior to the commencement of control measures against rabbits in 1978. It gives a baseline against which changes in the vegetation can be monitored. The effects of the introduced vertebrates on the vegetation are discussed. Additional data are given on the habitat, gregarious performance and phenology of some species.
