Abstract

The vegetation of Middle Paraná River flooding environments has been studied from different points of view. In particular, there are numerous studies related to composition, structure and successional dynamics (Neiff 1975, 1979, 1986a; Lewis and Franceschi 1979; Franceschi and Lewis 1979; Sabattini et al. 1983; Aceñolaza et al. 2004). These studies show a great variety of methods, approaches, and working scales, which make the interpretation and delimitation of communities difficult. Few studies approach methodological aspects for these environments (Sabattini and Lallana 1998).
