Change in pattern diversity during secondary succession in Estonian forests

  title={Change in pattern diversity during secondary succession in Estonian forests},
  • Zobel
  • Published 1999
Comparisons of observed variance in species diversity (exp H’) and in species richness with expectation assuming a random and independent distribution of species are used to assess the relative importance during succession of niche limitation (Wilson, Gitay & Agnew 1987; limitation of the abundance or occurrence of species by competitive interactions) and nucleation (Yarranton & Morrison 1974; the development of a community through chance establishment or persistence followed by vegetative… CONTINUE READING
