Measuring Plant Diversity

Thomas J. Stohlgren

There are several considerations in developing appropriate strategies for monitoring plant diversity at landscape scales. Many plant ecologists and land managers are rightly concerned with either current and rapidly emerging issues or long-term, chronic issues involving trends in plant diversity and the threats to that diversity. Thus, various strategies for monitoring plant diversity might be considered including retrospective studies, chronosequence studies, and monitoring plant diversity with permanent plots. Several examples are provided. The constraints and limitations of long-term studies are also discussed.

Keywords:   long-term studies, chronic issues strategy, issues strategy, permanent plots
