Abstract : In 1963 the actual geographic patterns of vegetation for the island of Martinique, West Indies, were mapped at different scales. The vegetation of the lower elevations was mapped completely and the mountain vegetation was sampled. Some 59 plant cover units were distinguished in the field for mapping which were classified into vegetation types and used in discussions of vegetation patterns.
