Facilitative effects by Azorella aretioides on other plants corroborate predictions of the ‘stress gradient hypothesis’ (SGH) for the first time in a tropical alpine environment. Facilitation was sustained by increased nutrient and water content in soils. This result differed from what has been described in alpine environments at higher latitude so far, thus extending the framework of the SGH.
