As the ecology and distribution of most tree species remain poorly understood, biogeographical maps offer spatial surrogates for analysis of biodiversity patterns. We used a 1 : 250,000 potential natural vegetation map to compare the current indigenous tree species composition of 250 0.5-ha quadrats surveyed around Mount Kenya (1999– 2004) with the original species composition of ten potential natural vegetation types (PNVTs). The original 1960 vegetation map was based on intensive fieldwork… CONTINUE READING
