    Abstract

    This paper presents the findings of an investigation into the land cover and soils of Turneffe Atoll, Belize. Ten vegetation associations and four soil types are identified along with the evolving impact of human activities on the atoll. This information is timely given the increasing threat to this area from new tourist development. An enhanced understanding of Turneffe's environment enables coastal zone managers to better identify conservation priorities and to actively guide the taking place.
