AbstractThe alpine vegetation of the West Dome (Mt Biota) of the Albert Edward Range is a combination of secondary and primary aspects which alternate mosaiclike and often form distinct seral vegetations. Towards the original shrubberies seral communities are growing with treeferns increasing in number towards the shrubberies’ edges. A true alpine vegetation is found only towards the summit and consists of a wide open vegetation with few scattered plants.
