The texture formation mechanism during high temperature deformation is investigated on AZ80 magnesium alloy. Three kinds of specimens with different initial textures were machined out from rolled plate having a ⟨0001⟩ texture. Plane strain compression tests were conducted at 723 K, 5.0 × 10−2 s−1 and strains ranging from −0.4 to −1.0. Development of (0001)< 10\bar{1}0> component is confirmed regardless of the initial texture. It is concluded that the development of (0001)< 10\bar{1}0> component can be attributed to the grain boundary migration during deformation. Besides (0001)< 10\bar{1}0> component, several texture components appeared depending on the initial texture.
