tropicales son afloramientos rocosos generalmente de granito que emergen abruptamente de sus ecosistemas circundantes (sabanas, bosques), configurandose como islas terrestres aisladas (Porembski, 2000; Porembski & Barthlott, 2000).

In South Africa, several species are confined to single isolated inselbergs
or outcrops (Goode, 2001 ; Donaldson, 2008).

Rock outcrop orchids reveal the genetic connectivity and diversity of inselbergs
of northeastern Brazil.
The relief is represented by erosive-accumulative glacis whose altitude decreases from the feet of the surrounding heights and interior inselbergs
to the centre of the depression and the lake level (that is, from 100 m to 0 m).
Estas unidades podem ocorrer na forma de inselbergs
florestados, caracterizados por relevos residuais de destaque na paisagem regional extremamente aplainada, sob o dominio das Campinaranas.
Both the macrohabitat (inselbergs
) and microhabitat (fissures) in which the species occurs are little affected by human activity.
The soil is sandy and arid and the topography is irregular, with inselbergs
and rocky outcrops (Vasconcellos et al., 2010).
Throughout this paper I refer to the inhabitants of the mountains, piedmonts and the surrounding inselbergs
and nearby plains as 'montagnards', (2) descendants of small populations speaking closely related Chadic (Afro-Asiatic) languages who occupied the region in the first and early second millennium AD.
The morphology of the Kaduna study area is characterised by inselbergs
, gently undulating plains, and small river valleys.
