Title: The St. Lucia System
Authors: Cowan, G.I.
ASFA Terms: Species
Biogeography
Issue Date: 1999
Abstract: The St. Lucia System is found at the southern end of the Mozambique Floodplain and has a subtropical climate, warmed by the Agulhas current. Biogeographically, it lies at the interface between tropical and temperate biota, providing the northern distribution limits to a number of temperate species and the southern distribution limits to a number of tropical species. It has a high species diversity partly as a result of this position but also because of variability in both physical characteristics and soil conditions.
