Description: During the 17th and 18th Centuries, the island of Antigua was largely cleared for agriculture. Virtually all of the remaining forests were cut over, grazed, and burned. Since the abandonment of sugar cane cultivation, much of the land has returned to secondary forest. Barbuda suffered mainly from overcutting and overgrazing beginning in the 17th century. Very heavy grazing pressure continues in Barbuda. Despite great disturbances, a majority of the native species remain on both islands. List of native and exotic species are presented here. A protection plan should be established for several areas on both islands
