Description
Understanding plant species distribution patterns and the underlying factors is a crucial step for the conservation and management of plant communities and ecosystems. The geographical distribution of plant species is not entirely random. Clear patterns exist and can be detected by careful analysis of the distribution patterns of a large number of species. Following this chorological approach suggested by White (1983), we explored the vegetation patterns in Benin using modern statistical tools and discussed the biogeographical and ecological implications.
