Die Trittpflanzen-Gemeinschaften in den südlichen Städten der Nordinsel Neuseelands
Between September and November 2003 106 vegetation samples of trampled areas were made in 11 New Zealand cities: Gisborne, Hamilton, Lower Hutt, Masterton, Napier, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Roturoa, Taupo, Wanganui and Wellington. The table, with 81 species, shows three main groups dependent on substrate: 1, trampled surfaces with gravel, compacted soil and combinations of these; 2, flagstones with gaps for plants; and 3, flagstones without gaps or concrete with few cracks. Most of the species (93 %) are not native to New Zealand. In comparison with phytocoenosis of the European vegetation the samples show affinities with temperate and Mediterranean trampled area associations.
