Measuring Plant Diversity. Lessons from the field.
Rapidly invading plant species from other countries are a great threat to wildlife habitat, placing more native plant species on threatened and endangered lists. This book offers alternatives to the approaches, designs, and techniques of the past that were chiefly designed for dominant species and other purposes. The author focuses on field techniques that move beyond classifying, mapping, and measuring plant diversity for relatively homogeneous communities. This book complements methods for measuring the biomass and cover of dominant plant species to include species are sparse, rare, and patchily distributed.
