Organism that can capture energy from sunlight or chemicals and use it to produce its own food from inorganic compounds; also called a producer. With so little known about the biophysical characteristics of the island, management decisions are difficult to make.

Torrential downpours that wash nutrients from leaves, that soak bai-k. wood and soil to saturation point, and that drench the forest inhabitants and make the air heavy with water vapour. Nevertheless, a great many local endemics and races do remain confined to particular islands or parts of islands, although these differences may have more to do with present-day variations in climate and soil type than the recent history of isolation by sea level rise. In: Merra, A, Finer, L, Kaila, S, Karjalainen, T, Mali, J, Pajula, , Korhonen, M (eds) Life Cycle Assessment on forestry and forest products.
