south temperate oceanic-island floral region

south temperate oceanic-island floral region Part of R. Good's (1974, The Geography of the Flowering Plants) Antarctic floral kingdom, which contains a very small flora scattered among the islands of the oceans surrounding Antarctica. There are only two endemic genera (see endemism), one of which is disjunct between several islands. Despite the great distance separating the islands, and their varying latitudes, there is a notable floristic constancy. A characteristic vegetation is tussocky grassland, dominated by vicarious species of Poa. See also floral province and floristic region.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Modern Language Association

The Chicago Manual of Style

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
