Examples of "phylica"
"C. capensis" has been found on a range of host plants, belonging to two families. In the Rhamnaceae, several species of "
" have acted as hosts, including "
nervosa" and "
stipularis", while in the Compositae (=Asteraceae), only "Metalasia muricata" has been recorded as a host for "C. capensis", and this may refer to "Metalasia densa", which was not differentiated from "Metalasia muricata" in Linnaeus' time.
The larvae feed on "
imberbis" and "Saxifraga" species.
The larvae feed on "Aspalathus spinosa", "
olaefolia", and "Euclea undulata".
When the native "
arborea" (syn. "
nitida") forest was almost entirely destroyed, grazing by the increasing numbers of cattle prevented natural regeneration. From the original five animals the cattle population grew to about 2000, which occupied an area of 3000 ha, at a density of 0.64 individuals per hectare. The only part of the island unoccupied by cattle was the Plateau des Tourbières, over 550 m above sea level.
polifolia (also called Rosemary or Saint Helena Rosemary) is a species of plant in the Rhamnaceae family. It is endemic to Saint Helena. Its natural habitats are rocky areas and rocky shores.
Conchaspis capensis is a species of scale insect from South Africa found on "Metalasia muricata" and "
" species. It was originally described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1763 work "Centuria Insectorum".
is a genus of plants in the family Rhamnaceae. It contains about 150 species, the majority of which are restricted to South Africa, where they form part of the "". A few species occur in other parts of southern Africa, and on islands including Madagascar, the Mascarene Islands, Île Amsterdam, Saint Helena, Tristan da Cunha, and Gough Island.
Plant life changes with elevation; at lower levels the volcanoes are covered with grass and tussock grasslands and sedge meadows and, on Amsterdam, the tree "
arborea" mixed with ferns. Higher up, on the Plateau des Tourbières, there are shrubs, bogs, and mosses.
arborea" trees occur on Amsterdam which, though the trees are also found on Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island, is the only place where they formed a low forest. It was called the "Grand Bois" ("Great Forest") which covered the lowlands of the island until forest fires set by sealers cleared much of it in 1825. Only eight fragments remain.
Carex thouarsii is a species of sedge found in the Tristan da Cunha archipelago. It lives chiefly in heaths dominated by "Blechnum palmiforme", and "
arborea" woodland. It is widespread and common on Tristan da Cunha and Inaccessible Island, but scarce on Nightingale Island, possibly due to a lack of habitat. It was first described by Dugald Carmichael in 1819 following the British annexation of Tristan da Cunha in 1816.
The subalpine scrub with an average annual rainfall 2000–6000 mm is above the tree line to 1800–2000 m, at elevations where frosts occur regularly in winter, dominated by shrubs in the plant families of Ericaceae (Erica spp.), Asteraceae (Hubertia spp., Psiadia spp., Stoebe passerinoides), and Rhamnaceae (
nitida), with some notable endemic species suchs Heterochaenia rivalsii (Campanulaceae), Eriotrix commersonii (Asteraceae), and Cynoglossum borbonicum (Boraginaceae).
arborea, also known as the Island Cape Myrtle, is a shrub or small tree with narrow needle-like dark green leaves, downy silver on the underside, and with greenish white terminal flowers. Usually a shrub or procumbent tree, it may reach 6–7 m in height in sheltered locations. It is found on various isolated islands, including the Tristan da Cunha group and Gough Island, in the South Atlantic Ocean, as well as Amsterdam Island in the southern Indian Ocean.
The lower-lying areas of the island were mainly covered by a woodland of "
arborea" trees mixed with ferns before the vegetation was devastated by a combination of wood-cutting, anthropogenic wildfire and grazing by feral cattle, and became replaced by exotic grassland. The vegetation of the plateau, however, was not grazed by the cattle and remains in a largely natural state, consisting mainly of sphagnum bogs and mosses, with the dwarf shrub "Acaena magellanica".
The Inaccessible rail is endemic to the uninhabited Inaccessible Island in the Tristan da Cunha group in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. The island has a temperate wet oceanic climate with high rainfall, limited sunshine and persistent westerly winds. The rail is found in almost all habitats on the island and at all altitudes, from . It reaches its highest densities in fields of tussock-grass ("Spartina arundinacea"), with 10 birds per hectare, and in tussock grass mixed with ferns ("Blechnum penna-marina") and sedges, with 15 birds per hectare. This habitat is found close to the shore and surrounds most of the island on the steep cliffs. The Inaccessible Island rail can also be found in upland fern-bush heath, dominated by wind-stunted "Blechnum palmiforme" and in the island forest in the central plateau which is dominated by "
arborea" (which can reach 5m where sheltered) and "Blechnum palmiforme". In both these habitats the population is estimated to be 2 birds per hectare. It will also forage among boulders on the beaches, but has not been found in the short dry grasses on the cinder cones (but the scientists making the observations cautioned that this does not mean that they never use the habitat). It frequently uses natural cavities among boulders or tunnels through grasses created by frequent use to move around while concealed.
