Mangere Island now supports a remnant patch of akeake forest and healthy tundra communities of shrub daisies, iceplant (Disphyma spp.), koromiko, and megaherbs such as giant sowthistle and soft speargrass.
The Chatham Islands ribbonwood (Plagianthus divaricatus), mahoe (Melicytus ramiflorus), akeake, and flax have all flourished since domestic stock were removed from the island.
Gigantism is common and examples include: Chatham Islands karamu (Coprosma chathamica) and the tree koromiko (Hebe barkeri), both of which are the largest species in their genera; and the akeake (Olearia traversii), one of the largest tree daisies on earth.
