Despite the huge temperature and precipitation gradient in the studied transect, plant assemblages are occurring almost along the whole range, supporting the hypothesis of azonality low dependence on macro-climate. The occurrence of these habitats is determined by strong seasonality of temperature and rainfall. Islands are defined as clumps of one or more species of vascular plants completely surrounded by a rocky surface devoid of vascular plants.
The dominance of non-native species may reflect the degree of disturbance in those habitats. Field and laboratory methods for general ecology. Herewith we eliminated duplicates in the dataset plots sampled in the same locality.
The latitudinal distribution of species is in general very variable within co-occurrence groups Fig. The proportion of hemicryptophytes increased from the floristic to the vegetation spectrum, whereas the proportion of phanerophytes decreased Table 1.
Rapini PlanrasA. Since latitudinal distribution as well as rainfall and temperature are strongly correlated with PCA 1 For caespitose plants, we defined as individuals very caespitose; for non-caespitose plants, we considered each isolated axis at soil level as an individual. They show a less clear trend in the distribution of assemblages Fig.
Classification dendrogram of species according to hierarchical clustering. The index they used is probably a raynkiaer descriptor of the vegetation physiognomy than is the count of individuals, but using their index poses many more difficulties when collecting data in the field. Hence, care must be taken when comparing spectra constructed in different seasons. Assemblages defined in this work can be potentially used for further supervised classification strategies in order to define plant community types within vernal pool vegetation.
Journal of Vegetation Science 7: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Journal of Vegetation Science 1: Locating the perennating buds below the surface provides added protection from harsh-season conditions.
Diversity and ecology of saxicolous vegetation mats on inselbergs in the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest.
The most frequent form of life was phanerophyte followed by hemicryptophyte and chamephyte. Furthermore, there was a bias in our sampling in relation to the other surveys.
Biologia Bratislava 55 1: Trabalhos realizados por Felfili et al. Hence, it is likely that, in our spectrum, all life-forms with underground renewing buds hemicryptophytes and cryptophytes or with an annual cycle therophytes were underestimated.

Aims and methods of vegetation ecology. Since previous studies AlvarezDeil et al. Epilithic plant communities on inselbergs in French Guiana.
In Chile vernal formaa are raukiaer studied. Article led by Prof. Ecological groups, phytosociology, syntaxonomic classification, vernal pools, vegetation database. The definitions given below refer to the highest perennating buds for any particular plant.
Financial support for data vkda during a field survey in by the Faculty of Biology, University of Freiburg is greatly acknowledged. Characterization and global distribution of vernal pools. A first floristic analysis and vegetation study over a broader geographical area and along the north-south precipitation gradient from the semi-arid via the subhumid Mediterranean to the temperate bioclimate in Chile was realized by Bliss et al.
Freeman and Company, Density may be obtained from frequency counts only if the spatial distribution of individuals is random, which is rarely the case for plant species Greig-Smith, On the other hand, Littorelletea australis species assemblage 7 are more frequent in the humid and colder climate in the South. Such specialists are frequently accompanied by opportunistic species from the surrounding habitats. Among them we also find the native species Plantae spathulatumone of the smallest dicotyledonous plants worldwide.
Rormas avoid this, Raunkiaer proposed a frequency spectrum, where the number of sampling units in which the species is present is used to weight the species. Series B, Biological Sciences Mean annual temperature ranges from For instance, Mantovani classified a cerrado site flora in life-forms, constructed its biological spectrum, and compared it with other cerrado spectra obtained from Warming and Ratter A comparison of the efficacy of higher taxa and species number in assessment of biodiversity in the neotropics.
Mello-Silva VelloziaceaeVoda. In all these sites, higher proportions of hemicryptophytes and phanerophytes were found. Ephemeral wetlands are habitats with a restricted time poantas for plant growth due to the alternation of flooding periods with dry ones. The chamaephyte life-form was also predominant. Hence the vascular plant species included in the original dataset were reduced to species.
The objective of this work was to study species that can be tested in the recovery of Arsenio high concentration areas. These species colonize shorelines of oligotrophic lakes and streams with gravel or sand and are more frequent in the southern part of the study area OberdorferDeil et al. Nevertheless, more detailed synecological studies are required for dee proper assessment.
American Society of Plant Taxonomists, Michigan. Both, hierarchical clustering and MRPP were carried out using the package vegan http:
