The influence of geomorphological heterogeneity on vascular plant species richness was studied in 26 Rhode Island Audubon refuges ranging in size from 1.4 to 58.6 ha. Indices of abiotic heterogeneity reflecting spatial variation in slope, aspect, and soil drainage were calculated from extant databases in a geographic information system. After removing the influence of refuge size on both biotic diversity and geomorphological heterogeneity, vascular plant species richness was found to be highly… CONTINUE READING
