This study was designed to explore floristic variation along the Pacific coast from Cook Inlet, Alaska, to the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. Data corresponding to 965 phytosociological releves (including 686 vascular plants) obtained by sampling 279 coastal sites were examined. Using an objective classification system (Average Linkage Clustering), floristic data acquired in fieldwork were related to the macroclimates of the study area. The registered taxa were grouped into… Expand
