[EXtract:] The Hindenburg Wall is a series of high Miocene limestone (primarily calcium carbonate) escarpments that form part of the Hindenburg Range, which is situated near the border between Papua New Guinea and Indonesia (Richards & Whitmore 2015). The Hindenburg Range experiences precipitation of over 7000 mm per annum (Loffler 1977) with persistent cloud cover for the greater part of the year (Brook et al. 1977, Hyndman & Menzies 1990). The vegetation at the foot of the Hindenburg Wall consists of four different vegetation types – secondary Lower Montane Rainforest (Hyndman & Menzies 1990), primary Lower Montane Rainforest (Johns, 1976, Hyndman & Menzies 1990, Johns 1993), Low altitude Midmontane Rainforest (Hyndman & Menzies 1990) and Ericoid scrub (Shea et al. 2012).
