Ole R. Vetaas, Jan H. Vikane, Heidi I. Saure and Vigdis Vandvik North Atlantic Islands with native and alien trees: are there differences in diversity and species-area relationships? Journal of Vegetation Science 25

Pinus mugo tilts easily in the autumn storms and generates open habitats for species associated with the historic pastoral landscape. Scots Pine forests are very homogenous and species richness does not correlate with the size of the islands.
