Arbustos e arvoretas de H. Zanin PoaceaeA. Origen de especies es nativo N o introducido I. The syntaxonomic linkage between assemblage 1 and the vernal pool species suggest their assignment to Nanojuncetea australis.

Primary succession on quartzite cliffs in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Penumbral rock communities in campo rupestre sites in Brazil. Robert Whittaker described life form classification as follows Whittakerwith our modifications: Kew, Royal Botanic Gardens.

Ecological groups, phytosociology, syntaxonomic classification, vernal pools, vegetation database. To describe the climatic gradient following the latitudinal distribution of sites we superimposed an ESRI-shapefile over climatic raster-dataset obtained from the WorldClim database Hijmans et al. The life-form spectrum in Itirapina differed significantly from Raunkiaer’s fomas spectrum.

Supplementary Material 1 – Plant life form classification

An analysis, which species are restricted to the vernal pool habitat and how they are distributed can be a first step to evaluate their vulnerability and the extinction risk and to assess their importance for conservation of plant diversity at the regional, national and even continental scale.

Diversity and Distributions 4: An additional a priori classification of species was defined according to available syntaxonomic studies. In a global revision, Deil classified these habitats in three main types: Furthermore, there was a bias in our sampling in relation to the other surveys. In other studies Mantovani, ; Batalha et al. Experimental analysis of ecosystems. Despite these two strategies allow the annuals to colonize different sites in an inundation gradient, the numerical classification mixed them in the assemblages, suggesting their co- occurrence due to a gradual transition from the aquatic to the terrestrial ecophase.


In the construction of the floristic and frequency spectra, we assigned each species to a single life-form class only, and always the one in which the renewing buds were less protected. Some of the plant community names are tentative. Se obtuvo una matriz con observaciones y especies.

Diversity and Distributions This spectrum differed significantly from Raunkiaer’s normal spectrum, mainly due to under-representation of therophytes and over-representation of phanerophytes. Native species dominate over adventive ones in each assemblage suggesting low risk of out- competition by introduced species adapted to these habitats. Plant names in vegetation databases – a neglected source of bias. The classification dendrogram is presented in Fig. Symbols of single species show groups defined a priori see legend: Prado PteridophytaJ.

Growth form and plants perennating by rhizomes that grow on the ground surface, are all hemicryptophytes. Classification, diversity, and distribution of Chilean Asteraceae: Mello-Silva VelloziaceaeT. Rare species, occurring in less than 7 plots, were excluded from the input matrix. We recommend the number of individuals as a measure of life-form abundance in the vegetation, since this procedure is relatively easy to use in the field and eliminates with the need for taxonomic identification of the species.

The nomenclature of plant species follows Zuloaga et al. Lohmann BignoniaceaeL. Vascular plant assemblages of ephemeral wetland vegetation along the Mediterranean-temperate gradient in Chile. Hence, care must be taken when comparing spectra constructed in different ,as.

Differences in the life-form distribution between the normal spectrum and a biological spectrum would point out which life-form characterizes the phytoclimate or the vegetation under study.

Diagnostic species for the classes Nanojuncetea australis, Limoselletea australis and Littorelletea australis. Cain suggested that some measure of the relative dominance of each species in the community would provide the most significant data. An inverted latitudinal gradient of plant diversity in shallow depressions on ivorian inselbergs. The site is classified as cerrado sensu stricto following Coutinho’s classification, which is a woodland according to Sarmiento A new measure of fidelity and its application to defining species groups.


New York, Columbia University Press. Groups defined a priori according to Raunoiaer et al.

List of species used for the classification and respective attributes groups defined a priorilife forms, status and assigned assemblage. We used Raunkiaer’s system to classify in life-forms the vascular plants present in 12 random 25 m 2 quadrats of a cerrado site. Raunkiaer proposed a system to classify plant life-forms based on firmas position and degree of protection of the renewing buds, which are responsible for the renewal of the plant’s aerial body when the favorable season comes.

We recommend the vegetation spectrum, when working in smaller areas, and desiring a more detailed description of the vira or when local ecological factors are being studied. The floristic spectrum considers the life-form of each species, while in the frequency spectrum, ppantas species is weighted by its frequency.

Journal of Ecology 7: Orchidaceae and Cyperaceae were the only families present in the two smallest island-size classes, while Guttiferae, Rubiaceae and Bromeliaceae were mostly present in the largest class. Life-form study is an important part of vegetation description, ranking next to floristic composition Cain, The occurrence of these habitats is determined by strong seasonality of temperature and rainfall.

This vormas was applied to the same dissimilarity matrix as for classification and running 1, permutations. According to hierarchical clustering we defined 7 co-occurrence groups and arranged them from north to south according to their median latitudinal distribution.
