Species-rich floras of chalk grassland compared to species-poor floras of acid soils.

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
(a) At Mount Caburn, in the lime-rich chalk hills of Sussex County, England, there is a much greater variety of plant and animal species than at (b) a heathland site in England. Heathlands are a product of thousands of years of human clearance of natural forest areas and are characterized by acidic, nutrient-poor soils.
