Joseph Dixon marked it as to-read Sep 26, Thus, although the microclimatic conditions and those of soil fertility were not quantified in the islands and, in the open spaces, we believe in the following hypothetical model: The caatinga is characterized by having two well defined seasons: In the latter cases, the stalks of the herbs were not typically visible above soil level, but when they were visible, they were small, decumbent and rhizomatous.

Saidie Gurevitcb marked it as to-read Sep 01, Therefore, these islands can act as a source of resources for the herbaceous understory community. The mean richness of the open spaces was lower than on the islands. A total of 51 species were recorded in the center and 55 at the edge of the islands of woody vegetation. Islands of perennial vegetation can improve the conditions of the understory and facilitate the establishment of herbaceous plants. No trivia or quizzes yet.

The Ecology of Plants by Jessica Gurevitch. Nicolanica is currently reading it Feb 09, Of the plots, 27 were located in the center of the island of woody vegetation, 38 at the edge of the ecollogia in a total of 38 islands and 35 in the open spaces. Therefore, long-term studies on the temporal variation of seed rain, seed bank, dispersal syndromes, resistance of the diaspores, ecolobia form of the species and population dynamics are needed to confirm the hypotheses raised in this study.


The literature suggests that light availability is greater on the edge of the islands than in the center MORO et al. Height was measured with a ruler or measuring tape, and diameter was measured with a digital ecologiaa.

Pavan Living Ma Way rated it it was amazing Jun 01, Throughout the text, human environmental influences are discussed. Ground-layer herbaceous showed differences in their degrees of lignification and the visibility of their stalks at soil level; they were considered herbaceous if 1 all individuals had non-lignified stalks or stalks with a low level of lignification and color ranging from green to vegeetal, with or without a trailing habit or 2 the plants that at ground level had aerial system directly represented by the leaves.

The analysis was conducted with the BioEstat 5. Because of morphological characteristics exhibited by some species early in their ontogeny, some young herbaceous plants were mistaken as seedlings of woody species. Christopher Tyrrell added it Oct 26, Such a growth habit was recorded only for species of Amaryllidaceae. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

The Physiognomy is similarly to our study area.

The strategy of colonization. Within the islands, the herbaceous community located in the center had greater diversity, greater height, and less density than at the edge.

Leah is currently reading it Apr 03, Spatial variation in the structure and composition of the herbaceous community in a semiarid region of northeastern 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. The diversity was greater in the center of the islands and decreased significantly at the edge of the islands, and in the open spaces table 3.

Plant Area Index and microclimate underneath shrub species from a Chilean semiarid community. Due to the systematic distribution of plots, 38 plots were installed at the edges of the islands and 27 plots in the center of the islands.

Aldina marked it as to-read Mar 14, The higher humidity in the islands accelerates the decomposition rate of organic matter MORO et al.

Theory of Island Biogeography. The size of these wood vegetation island varies from 6 m to 12 m in diameter. Masud Rony rated it it was amazing Apr 25, The diversity was greater in the center of the island and became less on the edge of the island and in the open spaces.

The book is unusual in emphasizing the importance of evolutionary and other historical processes for current ecology. Rana marked it as to-read Feb 03, For individuals without a visible stalk at soil level but with a leaf ex.

These attributes of the islands of the studied caatinga area may have contributed to the greater richness and diversity around them. Within the islands, the reduction in the availability of light from the edge to the center causes a domino effect: Mechanisms of interaction between a leguminous shrub and its understorey in a semiarid environment. After identification, the exsiccates collected by K.

The reproductive parts of all flowering herbaceous species in the interior of or near the plots were collected for taxonomic identification.
