Be the first to ask a question about The Ecology of Plants. The height of a plant was measured from the soil level, regardless of whether the plant had a stalk and leaves or only leaves at that point. The text covers a range of topics that you might find in a general ecology textbook, but with the focus on the interactions between plants and their environment over a range of scales.

Based on the premise that the conditions of microclimate and soil fertility on the islands of vegetation are more favorable to the establishment of a community of herbaceous plants than bare soil matrix, the hypothesis of this study is that, in areas of caatinga with a physiognomy of vegetation islands installed in sedimentary basins, the islands act as refuges for biodiversity, harboring greater species richness, diversity, and density of herbaceous plants, as well as individuals of greater height and diameter.

Below the canopy, there is a larger amount of organic material gruevitch high rate of mineralization. To ask other readers questions about The Ecology of Vegtalplease sign up.

In the islands, the lower density of the community in the center can be justified by shading and this reduction in density can be considered positive. Height was measured with gureviych ruler or measuring tape, and diameter was measured with a digital caliper.

Such a growth habit was recorded only for species of Amaryllidaceae. Jeannie rated it really liked it Dec 24, Ground-layer herbaceous showed differences in their degrees of lignification and the visibility of their stalks at soil level; they were considered herbaceous if 1 all individuals had non-lignified stalks or stalks with a low level of lignification and color ranging from green to brownish, with or without a trailing habit or 2 the plants that at ground level had aerial system directly represented by the scologia.

Despite harboring a greater richness and diversity, the floristic gurevitcy between the center and the edge of the islands and the open spaces was high. Gustavo Engenheiro added it May 20, In this study, we gurevitcu that the islands of perennial vegetation harbor, on average, greater species richness and greater diversity than open spaces, which confirms vegetap of the hypotheses of this study.
