In the industrialized world large sums of money are spent on measures to preserve biodiversity by improving environmental quality. This creates a need to evaluate the effectiveness of such measures. In response we devel oped a model, NTM, that links plant biodiversity to abiotic variables that are under human control. These vari ables are: vegetation management, and the soil variables groundwater level, and nitrogen availability. We used species richness and the criteria of the Red Lists, i.e… CONTINUE READING
