Abstract

This paper attempts to make quantitative statements on the influence of man on the vegetation of the island of El Hierro, in particular by contrasting present-day potential natural vegetation with present-day real vegetation. This provides, among other things, a scientific basis for nature conservation. The paper is limited to El Hierro, because there are only few publications relating to this island.
