Measuring Plant Diversity

Thomas J. Stohlgren

This chapter discusses the urgent need to assess rapidly the vulnerability of natural landscapes and specific habitats to plant species invasion. Systematic surveys of where non-native species have successfully invaded are needed to guide research, control, and restoration efforts. Since only a small portion of any large landscape or region can be affordably surveyed, modeled information on native and non-native plant diversity, soil characteristics, topography, and climate may be needed to guide the management of invasive species in the larger, unsampled areas. This is a case study that carefully considered current theories, experimental evidence, and various sampling design strategies before initiating the field studies.

Keywords:   multi-scale sampling, exotic species, alien species invasions, multi-scale designs, invasion theory
