Decision rules for riparian vegetation: Predicting the distribution of plant functional groups from trait-environment relationships.

Maureen M. Toner
The conservation of biological diversity requires simple, predicative models that yield quantitative guidelines for management. This is illustrated by contemporary problems in managing wetlands. Riparian wetlands, in particular, are under heavy pressure from the hydrological changes produced by dam construction and water diversion projects. There has been ample documentation of the significance of substrate and hydrologic variables on the composition of shoreline plant communities, yet we have few models that yield quantitative predictions for conservation...
