The formation of island ecosystems

published at : Krakatau. A century of change

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Island ecosystems are formed from the same generic building blocks as continental ecosystems. Accessibility of species to the island habitat is a primary limitation that prevents many species of the regional biota from becoming established. Limited space puts restriction on population sizes, and time, together with isolation, is setting limits on the evolution of diversity. The paper gives examples by comparing vegetation processes in the Krakatau islands with those in Hawaii
