Description :
Photographs of the vegetated North and East Forelands of Anak Krakatau, which emerged from the sea in 1930 and was totally devastated by volcanic activity in 1952/53, provide some evidence of rate of change of plant cover from grassland to woodland between 1971 and 1991. The series of photographs demonstrate that vegetational stages of the two forelands have not been synchronous and suggest that the North Foreland is lagging the East Foreland by about 12 years.
