Mapping Populations

  • Franco Pedrotti
Part of the Geobotany Studies book series (GEOBOT)


A plant population is the set of the individuals (organisms, phytoindividuals) of the same species that live in a given place at a given moment and interact with each other. A mapping of individuals coincides in part with that of populations, but it is still preferable to keep the two types (phytoindividuals and populations) distinct because they have different meanings and purposes, and because the methodologies used may be different.
