Threatened flora and forest in the Azores

  • J. P. Haggar (a1), A. R. Westgarth-Smith (a2) and D. Penman (a3)
Abstract

The authors visited the Azores in September 1986 to investigate the status of the archipelago's natural forests and the rare endemic trees they contain. They carried out intensive investigation only on the island of Pico, although they also worked on Terceira and Sao Miguel. These three are the only islands on which moderately large areas of forest are believed to remain.
