Abstract

BELLAMY et al.1 discuss two hypotheses to explain the remarkable associations and abundance of “arctic alpine” plants in Upper Teesdale, based on their detailed field survey. One involves a boundary instability which creates favourable opportunities for the “arctic alpine” species in an environment where there is reduced competition from other species because of low plant-productivity.
