Bryophyte populations in Mediterranean environments. Relationships to vascular vegetation and disturbance patterns
Mazzoleni, S.; Esposito, A.; Castaldo-Cobianchi, R.; Blasi, C.
A study of bryophyte population characters in relation to vascular vegetation patterns was done in the island of Capri, southern Italy. 118 phytosociological samples were analyzed by multivariate methods of classification and ordination. 15 interpretable clusters of relevés were found, clearly defined by differential bryophyte species, growth forms and ecological characters, whose trends were related to vegetation disturbance patterns.
