This study provides a broad understanding of vascular plant richness and community structure of mountain grassland (Matri) at Bandipora, Kashmir and links it various environmental variables. Employing a stratified sampling design, six sites were selected wherein vegetation was sampled by placing quadrats (n=210). Elucidating an important effect of topography and anthropic pressure, numerical classification –TWINSPAN segregated the quadrats into seven community types. Contrary to species rich…

Due to increasing demand and subsequent pressures on medicinal plants, it is imperative to understand their distribution and conservation status in their natural habitats. We studied the distribution

Distribution, species diversity and life-form spectra of plant communities along an altitudinal gradient in the northern slopes of Qilianshan Mountains, Gansu, China

Both richness of life-form and total species richness in agiven altitudinal belt (gamma-diversity) peaked at intermediate elevations, while relative species richness of different life-forms varied differently along the altitudinal gradient.

Classification of vegetation: past, present and future

The history of vegetation classification is discussed against a background of several controversial issues such as the problem of continuum vs. discontinuum, naturalness vs. arbitrariness of the nature of plant communities, universality vs. ad hoc character of syn- taxonomic schemes, as well as classical versus numerical approaches to data analysis for classification purposes.
