Abstract:

A plant list of 150 native and 82 introduced taxa has been compiled for the eight vegetated islands of the Investigator Group. Structural vegetation maps are provided for all the islands, matched to a floristic analysis of 227 quadrats from all the islands in the group with the exception of East and West Waldegrave Islands. Vegetation change and recovery on both Pearson and Flinders Island are discussed based on re-photography of a series of vegetation photographs taken by T.G.B. Osborn in 1923 and 1924. Recovery of the vegetation on Pearson Island from a lightning strike fire in April 1975 is described from a series of photopoints and associated vegetation quadrats established in 1976.
