This map of the ‘Remaining Primary
Vegetation, classified by the Underlying Geology’ was produced by overlaying
the map of ‘Remaining Primary Vegetation’
(derived from satellite imagery) on a map of ‘Simplified
Geology’. This map provides new insights into the patterns of
distributions of plant species, and the various types of vegetation, especially
in western and southern
Madagascar where the geology varies substantially.
The image above does not do full
justice to the actual map (which should be printed at A0!). For enlargements of
