Developing a strategy for evidence-based conservation is often problematic where a given habitat is found on relatively few small sites. Here, we investigate the important environmental variables that control species α-diversity in wet mesotrophic grasslands in lowland England. We analysed data on species richness and three soils variables from 10(More)
Some regions and habitats harbour high numbers of plant species at a fine scale. A remarkable example is the grasslands of the White Carpathian Mountains (Czech Republic), which holds world records in local species richness; however, the causes are still poorly understood. To explore the landscape context of this phenomenon and its relationships to(More)
Ecological theory and biodiversity conservation have traditionally relied on the number of species recorded at a site, but it is agreed that site richness represents only a portion of the species that can inhabit particular ecological conditions, that is, the habitat-specific species pool. Knowledge of the species pool at different sites enables meaningful(More)
