Abstract

Elevation and a topographical index, termed protection, were the most important variables associated with the 12 classified forest types. Drainage area, another topographic measurement, soil pH and water-holding capacity were also significant. Logging and farming disturbances prior to the formation of the national park were probable causal factors for some forest types. -from Authors
