The use of ecological theory and autecological datasets in studies of endangered plant and animal species and communities

, : The use of ecological theory and autecological datasets in studies of endangered plant and animal species and communities. Pirineos ( 138): 3-28

An outline is given of a simple method for analysing floristic change, the Functional Interpretation of Botanical Surveys, developed at NERC Unit of Comparative Ecology. The method involves the use of ecological theory and the collection of simple autoecological data. Examples using data from Spain and the UK are presented to illustrate how this approach can be used both to identify reasons for floristic change and to provide functional analyses of phytosociological data.
