Robinsonia gayana, Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile (12.01.09)

Robinsonia gayana, Asteraceae, Robinson Crusoe Island © Fantástico Sur ExpeditionsJuanango Hill and a few other rocky coastal islets are free of introduced land predators, serving as a valuable reservoir for a wealth of littoral plants, all endemic to the island. Representatives of the genus Ochagavia (Bromeliaceae) and Robinsonia (Asteraceae), for example, take advantage of this favourable condition. Additionally, seabirds such as Kermadec Petrel, nest on the scarce ledges of the inaccessible and rugged cliffs.

El Morro Juanango, junto a otros abruptos islotes costeros, se encuentran libres de predadores terrestres, sirviendo de eficaz reservorio para plantas litorales, todas endémicas de la isla. Representantes de los géneros Ochagavia (Bromeliaceae) y Robinsonia (Asteraceae - en la foto) toman ventaja de esta condición. Además, aves marinas como el Petrel Negro de Juan Fernandez (Pterodroma neglecta) nidifican en las escasas terrazas presentes en los inaccesibles acantilados.
