This study aimed to address which factors, other than topography, contribute to the floristic variation of forested slopes. The natural forest studied is located in the Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Nature Park (southwestern Portugal). We sampled topographic, edaphic, floristic and community structure variables along three bottom–top hillside transects. Multivariate analyses of soil variables (by PCA), and of woody species composition and floristic–environmental relationships (by CCA… CONTINUE READING
