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.
