A landscape ecological vegetation map of Sint Eustatius (Lesser Antilles)

de Freitas, J.A.; Rojer, A.C.; Nijhof, B.S.J.; Debrot, A.O.


A semi-detailed landscape-based vegetation map (scale: 1: 37,500) based on field data from 1999 has been available as an update of Stoffers’ 1956 map of the Lesser Antillean island of St. Eustatius, Netherlands Caribbean, but up to now was never finalized or published. In this report we complete the documentation of that map to provide new insights into vegetation change over a period of more than 40 years, and a quantitative reference point for future studies on landscape-level vegetation development for the island.
