Photo 4.—(Photo ref.: 1244/32). Limestone soils a barrier to migration of mountain beech. Helmet Hill, Western Southland. carries open stands of silver beech and kamahi on the dip slopes and silver beech/rimu/kamahi stands on the escarpment slopes. On siltstones to the east and on mountain beech/silver beech/rimu stands and mountain beech/silver beech/kahikatea stands. Relict matai (single trees) occur to an altitude of 2,000ft. (points marked X). In the extreme south, silver beech has invaded coastal gravel terrace rimu stands. Mountain beech has nowhere crossed the line of limestone outerop save on the driest escarpment slopes to the north. (Refer to text p. 346.)

Plate 17
Photo 5.—(Photo ref.: 1238/49). Reliet hill matai/totara/kahikatea stand, Motu Bush, Western Southland. A very open stand of large veteran matai, kahikatea and totara (outlined) forms an encleave within a forest now wholly of silver beech and mountain beech with widely spaced old rimu. No seedling, sapling or pole podocarps occur within the matai stand but there is peripheral eneroachment by the beech speeles. The forest boundary to the south is a typical ‘fire induced’ boundary suspected of being, in part at least, of pre-European origin. Where the forest has recovered after these fires mountain beech is the universal dominant. It is aggressive species over the greater part of the whole forest. (Refer to text p. 355)

Photo 6.—(Photo ref.: 1244/60). Overmature matai/kahikatea/rimu stand. Longwood Range. Southland. In this are near Merrivale at the northern end of the Longwood Range the lower slopes (A) carry very open stands of large diameter, defective podocarps which, as evident in the photograph, stand out above a low, dense underwood of scrub hardwood species. Over wide areas there are not more than two or three surviving podocarps per acre. No young podocarps are present. The underwood is floristically very rich. as is usual on old matai sites; 25 separate shrub species have been recorded on a single 1/80th acre quadrat. On the upper slopes of the Range (B) the relict podocarp stand merges into a silver beech stand containing widely spaced large rimu. A few true totara, the only living specimens found in the forests of the Long wood Range, occur at approximately the position marked (T). Refer to text p. 357.)

Photo 7.—(Photo ref.: 1477/5). Zonation of stands around open pakihi, Okuru River, South Westland. Forest type distribution patterns such as these are typical of the Westland coastal plains. Around the margins of the pakihgi there are in evidence all stages in the succession from pakihi through manuka scrub to silver pine to rimu high forest. Islands of forest of varying age also occure withing the pakihi on local dry sites. The oldest stands, rimu/rata/kamahi, are found only on well drained sites, e.g., on the hill slopes, on terrace margins. and on well drained recent alluvial soils. Kahikatea and occasional matai occure in association with the rimu on the alluviums and dense kahikatea pole stands form on alluvial soils where these are swampy. In the present instance, also, some silver beech is hound in the stands near the main streams, extensive silver beech forests ovvuring on the mountains a few miles to the east. The stands on the alluviums near the main river have been partly cleared to pasture. Plate 20
Photo 8.—(Photo ref.: 1536/6). Rimu forest of the eoastal plains, Saltwater, Westland. The patehy mottled texture of the stands will be radily apparent. This reflects the strongly group even-aged eondition of the forest and this, in turn, is considered indicative of the origin of the stands—i.e., through progressive eolonisation, by rimu, of pre-existent pakihi. Reliet Silver pine or, more rarely, old stems of manuka, occur within the youngest rimu stands (even-textured light grey pockets). Old rimu occur seattered through heavy stands of rata and kamahi on dry morainie ridges and on other well drained sites along the main streams. (Refer to text p. 380.)
Note.—All photographs from an altitude of approximately 12,300ft., within a camera of focal length 8¼ inches to give an approximate photo scale of 4 inches to 1 mile. Reduced to approximately 3 inches to 1 mile on reproduction.
