Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


In this chapter we will discus the problems encountered by researchers who study the demands that plant species make on their environment. We shall argue why ecohydrologists often use indicator values of plant species for site factors related to water management (e.g. moisture regime, nutrient richness, acidity) and demonstrate how these indicator values can be applied successfully to the eco-hydrological modeling of biodiversity
