The vertical structure of mediterranean scrub in Doñana national park (SW spain)


The vertical structure of pioneer and stabilized mediterranean sand vegetation at Doñana National Park has been compared using a non destructive method based on organ frequency analysis. Vertical distribution of organ frequencies and light intensity through the canopy, leaf chlorophyll content, leaf area index, organ biomass, are also discussed forArtemisia campestris subsp.maritima, Scrophularia frutescens, Halimium halimifolium, andCistus salvifolius.
