Abstract

Data on exposure and its effect on tree growth in the Falkland Islands are presented and analysed. It is concluded that sparsity of trees in the Islands is due to a combination of undeveloped soils and lack of advice and encouragement. An updated list of species currently growing on the Islands is presented along with a description and analysis of the important plantation at Hill Cove. Details of observations and trials laid down since 1976 are given and results, where available, are discussed. It is concluded that trees can be grown successfully and that shelter belts have a significant role in the development of agriculture in the Falkland Islands. L'auteur présente et analyse des données sur l'incidence du vent et sur ses effets sur la croissance des arbres dans les Iles Malouines; il en conclut que la carence d'arbres est la conséquence de l'état peu développé des sols, associé à un manque de conseils et d'encouragement. Une liste des essences actuellement établies sur les îles est fournie, ainsi eu'une description analytique de l'importante plantation à Hill Cove. L'auteur ajoute des renseignements détaillés sur des observations et des expériences effectuées depuis 1976, et il en discute les résultats disponibles. Il tire la conclusion que des arbres peuvent tres bien être cultivés et que les brise-vent ont un rôle utile à jouer dans le développement de l'agriculture.
