The monsoon evergreen broadleaved forest is a tropical montane evergreen broad-leaved forest based on its habitats, physiognomy and floristic composition (Zhu et al., 2005), while the mid-montane wet evergreen broad-leaved forest on upper mountains has been likened to cloud forests or mossy forests of Asia (Shi et al., 2009, Zhu et al., 2016).
Close floristic relationships have been proposed for Cerrado vegetation and fragments of seasonal forest that resulted from climatic and edaphic changes at the end of the Quaternary (Pinheiro & Monteiro, 2010).
The four floristic units obtained via a classifications process were conformed into three habitat types, the Mudflat, Beach and Reedbed (MBR) Habitat Type, Riparian Forest Habitat Type and the Fringe Terrestrial Habitat Type.
This paper examines the relationships amongst different formations of vegetation in seasonally dry regions throughout the tropics, especially in their floristic composition, and also in terms of their ecology.
High heterogeneity in vegetation structure and floristics also promotes high species richness in riparian areas (Wiens, 1985; Sisk et al., 1997), which further explains higher species richness of birds in Brown Canyon.
To identify the floristic composition and study all types of plant habitats in "Small Pinewood" ecological path, the author used the traditional route-guided method [1,2].
Floristic Quality Assessment (FQA), a protocol for quantifying plant community quality relative to one that retains remnant natural condition, has been successfully applied to a suite of natural community types and ecological restoration projects.
The floristic composition and structure of intermediate and late successional stages of a tropical dry forest (TDF) growing on limestone outcrops, situated in the southern portion of the Espinhaco Mountains, Southeastern Brazil, was studied In each fragment, three plots of 20x50m were delimited, totaling 0.3ha for each successional stage.
Finally, the floristics lists of levels below the biogeographical region are included precisely because a comparison of their genus flora with other regions can shed light about their true floristic affinities.
After Royle, several workers included the plant species in their publications dealing with floristics of the Kashmir Himalaya.
