Average height of 10-20cm

Tussock Tall grass Av. height of 60cm, can grow up to 1m VERY VERY hardy plant – can grow in very dry and windy conditions Does NOT need “perfect” soil conditions, can grow in very infertile soil

Tussock

Tall grass

Av. height of 60cm, can grow up to 1m

VERY VERY hardy plant – can grow in very dry and windy conditions

Does NOT need “perfect” soil conditions, can grow in very infertile soil

“ Scrubland” – areas of land with mediums sized vegetation Many different varieties of medium sized shrubs and small trees eg Manuka and Kanuka trees

Many different varieties of medium sized shrubs and small trees eg Manuka and Kanuka trees

Beech Forest - Grow to about 1500m but at Tongariro they do NOT grow as tall due to the eruptions. (Can’t get old enough to grow tall due to eruptions)

Podcarp Forest - Rimu - Very tall trees

Mountain Daises Very small plants Average height 7cm Often found with moss

Identifying Spatial Variation in Vegetation in the TVC . Use your notes to identify which type of vegetation is found in the different regions. ? ? ? ? Vegetation Western Foothills Eastern Slopes Western Slopes Mountain Peaks

Vegetation on the Mountain Peaks Few, if any, plants can survive in the extreme conditions on the mountain peaks. The mountain peaks is made up of rocks.

Vegetation on the Western Slopes High to low…. - Mosses and lichens Hardy alpine plants like hebe, mountain daises and alpine herbs Tussock Scrublands

High to low….

- Mosses and lichens

Hardy alpine plants like hebe, mountain daises and alpine herbs

Tussock

Scrublands

Vegetation on the Western Foothills High to low…. - srubland Beech forest Podcarp forest (tall trees eg Rimu)
