Abstract

A survey of the distribution of woody species in floodplain swamps revealed significant effects due to microtopography. Hypericum hypericoides plants were found more commonly than predicted by random models in tip-up mounds (areas elevated by tipped trees resulting in higher elevation microsites) and at sites with a mean elevation of approximately 26 cm above the "moss line".
