Floristic gradients of herbaceous vegetation and P/N ratio in soil in a Mediterranean area

A broad range of herbaceous plant comunities in a Mediterranean Landscape in central Italy, running from heavily urbanized areas to semi-natural pastures, has been studied. These communities can be easily arranged along a gradient of ruderality. We inspected which of a series of soil parameters could better explain this gradient (pH, CaCO3, granulometry, N… CONTINUE READING
