328 species in total were recorded at 500 sites between 30° 06’ and 24° 00’N in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. The occurrence of species was classified into 5 constancy classes: dominant, very common, common, occasional and sporadic. A sharp decrease in the number of recorded species was noticed along the N–S direction from Cairo-Suez road in the north to Aswan-Baranis road in the south (from 179 to 23), and an increase along the E–W direction from the Red Sea coast in the east to the River Nile… Expand

Association of Morphological, Ecological, and Genetic Diversity of Aerva javanica Populations Growing in the Eastern Desert of Egypt
TLDR
Variations among ten populations of Aerva javanica in different sites in the Eastern Desert of Egypt were analyzed based on morphological and ecological attributes and molecular variation expressed by Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) markers. Expand
Biogeographical characterisation of Egypt based on environmental features and endemic vascular plants distribution
Abstract Biogeographical studies are considered effective for investigations on macroecology and evolution, as well as for delineating patterns of endemism and identifying the key drivers influencingExpand
Effects of geomorphology and soil conditions on vegetation structure in conserved desert wadis: A case study of Jal Al-Zor escarpment, Kuwait

TLDR
The location and temporal variations in reproductive traits, flowering phenology, and the seed bank of Retama raetam populations growing in a hyper-arid environment may be related to environmental differences between locations and differences in annual precipitation. Expand

Life-forms and clonality of vascular plants along an altitudinal gradient in E Ladakh (NW Himalayas)
TLDR
Diversity of clonal plant types is small in prevailing habitats of the study area and most clonal plants are restricted to small patches of wetlands at intermediate and lower altitudes, and their decline at higher altitudes is likely to be responsible. Expand
Phytogeographical analysis of seed plant genera in China.
TLDR
This paper quantitatively characterizes the composition of floristic elements at multiple scales (i.e. national, provincial and local), and explores the extent to which climatic and geographical factors associated with each flora can jointly and independently explain the variation in florism elements in local floras.
