Soil, biomass, and management of semi-natural vegetation – Part II. Factors controlling species diversity

  title={Soil, biomass, and management of semi-natural vegetation – Part II. Factors controlling species diversity},
  author={Andr{\'e} P. Schaffers},
  journal={Plant Ecology},
Using a wide range of conditions and plant community types, species diversity was investigated in relation to edaphic and non-edaphic site conditions, management, and biomass characteristics. Both standing biomass and aboveground production were investigated, and their effects compared. Three taxonomic assemblages were studied: (1) vascular plants only, (2) bryophytes also included, (3) terrestrial lichens included as well. Using a multivariate approach, both species richness and evenness could… CONTINUE READING
