Topographic and altitudinal patterns in plant communities on European Arctic islands / R.J. Virtanen, P.A. Lundberg, J. Moen, L. Oksanen.

Title: Topographic and altitudinal patterns in plant communities on European Arctic islands / R.J. Virtanen, P.A. Lundberg, J. Moen, L. Oksanen.

Date: 1997.
In: Polar Biology. (1997.), Vol. 17(2) (1997)
Abstract: Vegetation on Bear Island, Jan Mayen and Spitsbergen was investigated in order to describe main patterns in plant community distributions and compare them with those on mainland. In numerical classification, communities were clearly different, but physiognomically similar Racomitrium and Sanionia communities dominated in most habitats on Bear Island and Jan Mayen. On Spitsbergen, high altitude sites were occupied either by moss-dominated communities or by variable assemblages of fragmented moss cover and scattered vascular plants. Dwarf shrub and grass heaths common on mainland did not occur on grazer-free Bear Island or Jan Mayen, and were confined to lowest altitudes on Spitsbergen.
