Abstract

Feldmark vegetation occurs extensively on the plateau of Macquarie Island above about 200 m. Alternating
stripes of vegetation and gravel are frequently associated with terraced terrain. Detailed study of 38 terraced sites with
non-windward aspects shows vegetation-terrace interaction to be active under present climatic conditions. Wind,
moisture, hillslope, slope stability and vegetation all affect terrace form.
