Floristic surveys of Restinga Forests in southern Bahia, Brazil, reveal the effects of geography on community composition

Abstract: The Restinga forests of southern Bahia state, Brazil, grow on sandy coastal Quaternary sediments. As their floras are relatively poorly known, the present study assessed their floristic compositions. We surveyed four sites at Maraú and Itacaré and identified 302 angiosperm species belonging to 184 genera of 75 families. The most species rich families were: Fabaceae (35 species), Myrtaceae (25), Rubiaceae (21), Sapotaceae (13), Bromeliaceae (12), Annonaceae (11), Erythroxylaceae (10), Melastomataceae (9), and A… Show more

“…To conjecture about an alternative hypothesis to explain the disjunction observed in our target species in southern Bahia, it is important to observe that this region has a unique flora (Fernandes & de Queiroz, ). Further, it is highlighted in several biogeographic studies as a place of disjunction (Cazé et al., ; Menezes et al., ; Pinheiro et al., ) or secondary contact (Carnaval, Hickerson, Haddad, Rodrigues, & Moritz, ; Franco & Manfrin, ; Pellegrino, Rodrigues, Harris, Yonenaga‐Yassuda, & Sites, ).…”

“…To perform dispersal‐vicariance analysis (S‐DIVA) and Bayesian Binary MCMC (BBM) methods using RASP 2.0 (Yu, Harris, Blair, & He, ; Yu, Harris, & He, ), six operational geographic units (Crovello, ) were established based on genetic circumscription of population groups as well as considering our previous knowledge about geographic distribution, as for instance the disjunctive occurrence of C. insularis in a oceanic islands: Fernando de Noronha islands (ISL), southern inland Inselbergs (SII), northern inland Inselbergs (NII), southern restinga forest (SRF), northern restinga forest 1 (NRF1), and northern restinga forest 2 (NRF2) (Figure ). We subdivided northern Atlantic coast of Brazil in two operational geographic units (NRF1 and NRF2) based on the observation that NRF1 includes internal haplotypes and is allocated in an important biogeographic region for BAF, which encompasses a unique flora (Fernandes & de Queiroz, ). We used 1,000 random trees from our species tree output in both analyses and assumed four as the maximum number of ancestral areas.…”

“…O entendimento dos processos que influenciam a organização de comunidades de espécies arbóreas em ambientes naturais tem sido um dos principais focos na área de ecologia vegetal, uma vez que esta é uma questão-chave para a definição de estratégias adequadas de manejo e restauração florestal. Neste sentido, vários estudos no Brasil têm adotado uma abordagem com enfoque taxonômico, sem considerar aspectos funcionais, demonstrando a influência de fatores ecológicos, como condições ambientais (Torres et al 1997;Oliveira-Filho & Fontes 2000;Moro et al 2015), competição inter e intraespecífica (Martins et al 2004) e outros processos ecológicos espacialmente estruturados (Fernandes & Queiroz 2015;Maçaneiro et al 2016), sobre a distribuição de espécies arbóreas em ecossistemas florestais. Porém, mais recentemente, estudos começaram a empregar abordagens nas quais as espécies são tratadas como entidades funcionalmente distintas (Magnago et al 2014;Rosado et al 2016), permitindo inferências ecológicas com um viés evolutivo, em que algumas características morfológicas, ecológicas e fisiológicas são consideradas como atributos funcionais e podem indicar a aptidão de uma espécie para se desenvolver em uma determinada condição ambiental (Violle et al 2007).…”

“…The restinga forest is composed of dense vegetation, but light levels are high in the understory (Joly et al , 2012), resulting in developed shrub and herbaceous strata. Epiphytes and lianas are also common (Fernandes and Queiroz, 2015). This forest was recently formed from the downward movement of some species from the Atlantic Forest of the interior of the state of São Paulo (Eisenlohr et al , 2013;Sanchez et al , 2013).…”
