Abstract

In southern Africa, stratified, closed canopy forests are regarded as relict from former wetter phases. In the eastern Cape such forests are found on the slopes of the Great Escarpment and at one coastal site at Alexandria. This forest is anomalous with regard to its coastal situation, substrate, climatic environment and geographical location. Results point to water availability as the principal control of forest distribution in the Alexandria area. (AJC).
