Abstract

Extensive modification of coastal vegetation at the Pineapples and Cape Deslacs rookeries is related to the burrowing,trampling and guano deposition of short-tailed shearwaters (Puffinus tenuirodtris).Ordination and classification of the associated vegetation and measurement of soil nutrient levels demonstrate two distinct but interactin phases of vegetation succession. These are affected by coastal influence, edaphic factors and the presence or absence of nesting areas.
