    The salient feature of the region is the contrast between the beech forests of the E and S, and the conifer-hardwood forests of the NW. Between these there is a broad transitional zone where beech occurs in discontinuous blocks. From a botanical viewpoint, the most important management consideration is adequate control of introduced animals, in both the forests and open country above. (auth)

    The salient botanical feature of the region is the contrast between the beech forests of the east and south, and the conifer-hardwood forests of the north-west. Between these, there is a broad transitional zone where beech occurs in discontinuous blocks. The flora and vegetation (other than the beech forest) are very similar to those described for Westland National Park, but there are a number of species, mainly at high altitudes, that are better known east of the Main Divide or south of the Haast River. From a botanical viewpoint, the most important management consideration is adequate control of introduced animals, in both the forests and open country above. (auth)
