Human disturbance, natural environmental conditions and seed dispersal are often inferred as important drivers of plant community richness and diversity in wetland ecosystems. However, plant functional groups within a plant community have different environmental requirements and may respond differently to human disturbance. Therefore, the understanding of the relative importance of these variables in determining community and functional groups richness and diversity is important for improved… CONTINUE READING
