Coordinates and climatic information were imported from the ESRI- shapefile to R using the package maptools http: Similar species richness was detected on both plateaus, with most of the islands composed of up to five species.

The existence of vernal pools in the study area is formsa to different ecoregions. Grey frames show the single assemblages with assigned numbers identifiers bellow. From the floristic to the vegetation life-form spectra, the classes with higher proportions vira and hemicryptophytes varied differently.

Journal of Vegetation Science 7: This phenomenon is also mentioned for vernal pools in California, were the high frequency of Briza minorLeontodon taraxacoidesLythrum hyssopifoliaPicris echioidesMedicago polymorphaSonchus asperTrifolium dubium and Vulpia bromoides is recorded Barbour et al. A bioclimatic classification of Chile: The chamaephyte life-form was also predominant. The resulting dataset contains observations of species.

Queiroz MimosaceaeM.

The species were classified by the Raunkiaer life form. Liliopsida species had the highest abundance, frequency and dominance, with Velloziaceae, Cyperaceae, Orchidaceae, Bromeliaceae, and Guttiferae families predominating on both plateaus.

Loadings of the environmental factors in the three first PCA axes and summarizing statistics of the principal component analysis PCA.


Such species could be recorded by chance or due to introgression from the local neighbouring vegetation and may interfere in the statistical analyses. Brazilian Journal Biology, v. Penumbral rock communities in campo rupestre sites in Brazil. The most frequent form of life was phanerophyte followed by hemicryptophyte and chamephyte.

These sets were compared with diagnostic groups defined a priorilife forms and their status in South America introduced vs native species. Cocktail method; Bruelheide as well as to search for indicator species of seasonal wetland types. Native and non-native species in annual grassland vegetation in Mediterranean Chile. An ecological study of Vellozia schnitzleiniaa drougth-enduring plant of northern Nigeria.

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Journal of the North Fodmas Benthological Society Although in our sample could have resulted in an underestimation of annual plants, the therophyte proportion is also low in life-form spectra of cerrado sites Mantovani, ; Batalha et al.

Vernal plantax offer a habitat to native annuals, many of them endemic in Chile Arroyo et al. It was used the Braun-Blanquet cover value and abundance scale. Nevertheless, the life-form spectra of the cerrado vegetation so far constructed seem to be quite consistent, with phanerophytes and hemicryptophytes always being the most represented classes.

These species occur with preference in the bottom of seasonal pools Bliss et al. The more abundant and probably more adapted species to the environmental conditions were Axonopus marginatus, Simarouba amara, Aristida ekmaniana, Digitaria ciliaris, Stylosanthes viscosa, Andropogon bicornis, Maprounea guianensis and Sabicia brasiliensis.

Also, the vegetation biological spectrum is more readily comparable to biological spectra similarly constructed for other sites.

Floristic, frequency, and vegetation life-form spectra of a cerrado site

A comparison of the efficacy of higher taxa and species number in assessment of biodiversity in the neotropics. Geographical distribution of analyzed samples. California Native Plant Society, Sacramento. Our aim is to answer the following questions foemas respect to the life-forms of vascular species found in a cerrado site in Itirapina Municipality, southeastern Brazil: In this analysis the index A chance corrected within-group agreement estimates the proportion of the distances explained by group identity and varies from 1 all sample within groups are identical to 0 within-group heterogeneity equals the expectation by chance.

Braun Blanquet, Floristic similarity, Life form and Savannah. The vegetation of granite rock outcrops in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the need for its protection. An inverted latitudinal gradient of plant diversity in shallow depressions on ivorian inselbergs. New Jersey, Princeton University Press. Hierarchical clustering was applied in order to get co-occurrence assemblages.

Herewith we eliminated duplicates in the dataset plots sampled in the same locality.

A dee foi realizada em setembro de In such studies, plant species with high fidelity values for a syntaxa class, order, alliance or association are defined as diagnostic. Pflanzensoziologische Studien in Chile. In our survey, we sampled species of which 75 were considered phanerophytes Cain suggested that some measure of the relative dominance of each species in the community would provide the most significant data. Axonopus marginatusAxonopus pressusAristida ekmaniana e Simarouba amara.

Lohmann BignoniaceaeL. Species status is either native N or introduced I. We compared the floristic spectrum to Raunkiaer’s normal spectrum. Raunkiaer constructed a “normal spectrum” which could act as a null model against which different life-form spectra could be compared.
