Abstract The tropical Far East has many outcrops of ultramafic rock including very large areas in Sulawesi (c. 8000 km2) and New Caledonia (c. 5500 km2). The outcrops occur under several different climates, and give rise to a range of soils, the characteristics of which are reviewed. The vegetation on them is very varied. Under the same climate one can find grassland, scrub, and both short and tall rain forests. The variation in species richness on the ultramafics is difficult to explain. The… Expand
