<p>This study deals with the Ujung Kulon peninsula, situated on the westernmost tip of the island of Java (Indonesia). Descriptions are given of the area's history, climate, geology, gemorphology, soils, flora, vegetation and fauna. For three of these land-attributes, viz. geomorphology (landform), soils and vegetation, classification systems are presented. The classification of vegetation types is based on their complete floristic composition and carried out by tabular comparison of plot-data. Relations between all landattributes are studied, resulting in the description of landscape units that are shown on a landscape-ecology map (scale 1 : 75 000). Special attention is paid to the impact of the 1883 Krakatau eruption on soils and vegetation, the orographic vegetation zones as determined by the so-called 'telescope-effect' and the availability of foodplants for the Javan rhinoceros.
