Relevés were made in randomly-stratified clustered sample plots distributed over homogeneous patches of secondary vegetation. A TWINSPAN classification, refined by Braun-Blanquet procedures, revealed twelve secondary plant communities (six grassland, two shrubland and four recovering forests). These were grouped into a set of six lower montane (ca. 2300 m alt.) and a set of six upper montane (ca. 2800 m alt.) plant communities. These communities have been described by characterizing their structure, composition, ecology (environmental aspects) and distribution. Finally some differences and similarities between the communities, as well as their position along a possible successional gradient, have been discussed.
