Coarse-scale plant species richness in relation to environmental heterogeneity

  title={Coarse-scale plant species richness in relation to environmental heterogeneity},
  author={Juli G. Pausas and Jordi Carreras and Albert Ferr{\'e} and Xavier Font},
We test to what extent mean environmental conditions and environmental heterogeneity are related to species richness in a regular geographical grid system (UTM) of 10 km ¥ 10 km in the NE Iberian Peninsula (i.e. Catalonia, ca. 31 900 km2). Species richness of each UTM quadrat was estimated by compiling a large database (more than a million records) from bibliographic references and atlases. Mean environmental conditions of each quadrat were derived from climatic maps. Environmental… CONTINUE READING
