How is the natural flora of an atoll distributed?

Post by jazzvet » Wed May 16, 2012 2:21 am

Can anyone help me with a brief description/diagram of, or a reference for the distribution of flora on coral atolls? I know that atolls are roughly broken up into different zones when it comes to plant growth but I'm having trouble finding out what these zones are and what grows in each.
In addition, I would really appreciate any help with regards to how the activities of man have changed the make-up of the flora present and the effect of these of activities on the distribution of plants.
Thanks very much in advance :-)
