The strategy of colonization. The Physiognomy is similarly to our study area. In open areas, the sun rays touch the ground directly. In this study, we found that species richness, diversity, density, and height of the herbaceous community established in islands were higher than in open spaces.

Clare rated it really liked it Aug 11, HoffmGuettarda angelica Mart. In this study, we found that the islands of perennial vegetation harbor, on average, greater species richness and greater ggurevitch than open spaces, which confirms one of the hypotheses of this study. For individuals branched at soil level tillers without a visible common stalk base, the total diameter of the individual was calculated based on gurevitcch diameters of all tillers present.

Joseph Dixon marked it as to-read Sep 26, In the area, there was practically no superposition of the crowns of woody plants, which resulted in a discontinuous canopy forming islands of vegetation surrounded by land without woody vegetation and places with greater penetration of sunlight. This resource includes all the textbook’s figures, photographs, and tables, available as JPEGs high- and low-resolution and in PowerPoint.


The Ecology of Plants

Microclimatic conditions more favorable of the biodiversity refuges islands could prevent local extinction of the herbaceous community and, in the future, the islands could function in the system as source of diaspores to the open ecolotia or smaller island. To correct this mistake, individuals of these species were collected, planted in polyethylene containers with soil from the site, transported to the greenhouse at the Universidade Federal Gurevigch de Pernambuco and monitored for six months until reproductive material could be obtained for correct taxonomic identification of the species.

The mean richness of the center and the edge of the islands were similar table 2. Bauru Canal 6, These changes in microclimate and soil fertility contribute to the ggurevitch of herbaceous vegetation below the canopy in the beginning stages of regeneration MORO et al.

Leah is currently reading it Apr 03, Within the islands, the reduction in the availability of light from the edge to the center causes a domino effect: In the plot interiors, all herbaceous individuals were counted, marked and measured for stalk height and diameter at soil level. Clare added it Apr 28, Therefore, long-term studies on the temporal variation of seed rain, seed bank, dispersal syndromes, resistance of the diaspores, life form of the species and population dynamics are needed to confirm the hypotheses raised in this study.

Based on the premise that the conditions of microclimate and soil fertility on the islands of vegetation are more favorable to the establishment of a community of herbaceous plants than bare soil matrix, the hypothesis of this study is that, in areas of caatinga with a physiognomy of vegetation islands installed in sedimentary basins, the islands act as refuges for biodiversity, harboring greater species richness, diversity, and density of herbaceous plants, as well as individuals of greater height and diameter.

Carlee rated it really liked it Dec 13, Abundance of species of herbs found in the center and at the edge of the islands of woody vegetation and in open spaces in an area of caatinga embedded on a sedimentary basin in a semiarid region of the northeast region of Brazil.

A total of 51 species were recorded in the center and 55 on the edge of the islands and 48 in the open spaces. Trent added it Mar 12, Matthew Simon rated it it was ok Oct 27,
