The foregoing account of the vegetation of Lake Manyara National Park emphasizes several valuable principles.

It is also explained that the various vegetation types described are in a dynamic state, and some of the causes for this condition are noted. From this it becomes clear that the several forces in operation vary in intensity under differing circumstances. Some may be classed as controlling forces and others as modifying ones.
