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.
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.
