Research article A Note on the Forest Edge at Te Whaiti
Following cessation of indiscriminate burning, there is some re-advance of the forest over fern land at Te Whaiti. A few mechanisms of re-advance are discussed and emphasis is placed on the part played by birds in dissemination of seed. Present successions would appear to lead to formation of scrub hardwood stands, containing scattered podocarps predominantly of poor form, more rarely to formation of densely stocked podocarp stands with trees of good form.
