Assembly of plant communities in fragmented landscapes : the role of dispersal

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

The present research showed that dispersal problems in fragmented landscapes are as important for the understanding of plant diversity losses as the traditional explanation of deteriorating habitat quality. Efficient conservation and restoration of plant diversity requires a predictive ecology based on general principles of the assembly of plant communities.
