Abstract

The forest communities in the West Tamar were sampled by a stratified random process using 55 plots selected after preliminary analysis of 243 Forestry Commission continuous forest inventory plots, which occur in the area. A total of 13 floristic units were recognised and described. The relationship of the floristic units to changing water availability, drainage, soil fertility and fire frequency are assessed and the problems of structural versus floristic classifications of forest types are discussed.
