Roadside microhabitats , floristic zonation and pecies traits

  title={Roadside microhabitats , floristic zonation and pecies traits},
  author={Nurul Huda Abd. Karim and Azim U. Mallik},
Recognizing the severity of road effects and need for developing a natural and self-sustained roadside vegetation cover, this study aimed to provide an ecological basis for selecting desirable native plants based on their autecological attributes by floristic analysis of naturally colonized plants in roadside microhabitats. We hypothesized that (i) vegetation zonation along roadsides is a function of the different microtopography and substrate types (microhabitats) created by road construction… CONTINUE READING
