A hierarchical deductive approach for functional types in disturbed ecosystems

Pausas, J; Lavorel, Sandra


We propose a hierarchical approach for plant functional classification in disturbed ecosystems to be used for vegetation modelling and global plant trait comparisons. Our framework is based on the persistence of plants at different levels of organization. We assume that the main parameters to determine persistence in chronically disturbed ecosystems are those related to: Individual-persistence capacity, Propagule-persistence capacity (persistence at the population level), Competitive capacity...[Show more]
