- Methodology of Vegetation Analysis and Mapping based on Phytosociology and Vegetation Science
The materials of phytosociological field surveys, the so-called releves, contribute to classification of plant communities and to the comprehension and recording of vegetation as basic units of natural environments. This in turn may assist various other scientific studies such as understanding the vegetation composition, species richness, etc. They also contribute to the ideas for potential natural vegetation, restoration of harmonious landscapes and natural vegetation. Practical methods for filed surveys, and for classification and description of vegetation are described herein in Japanese, based on Braun-Blanquet (1964) and the "Tuxen school" of phytosociology. And also vegetation mapping methods are described. Vegetation maps are the actual vegetation map, The degree of naturalness vegetation, map of potential natural vegetation, the map of original vegetation, them map of sigma-associations, the map of site potential, the functional vegetation map, vegetation complexes, the ecoclimate map, the actual vegetation map based on remoted sensing.
