Species composition and floristic relationships in southern Goiás forest enclaves

Abstract: Hinterland fragments of Atlantic forests situated in transitional areas are poorly known with respect to the effects of human impacts on their species composition and regeneration. The purpose of this study was to describe and characterize the structure and composition of the tree community of forest remnants located in Itumbiara, Goiás State, Central Brazil, and to analyze their floristic relationship with other areas of seasonal and transitional vegetation ecotones. Five forest fragments were chosen for tree… Show more

“…In addition, the unique species of each fragment also occurred in low numbers. In spite of the relatively small size of the sampled fragments, these facts point to the risk of rapid decline or local extinction of many plant species populations of the remaining semideciduous forests of Itumbiara in response to their increasing fragmentation (GARCIA et al, 2011).…”

“…Studies regarding the impact of habitat fragmentation and those that characterize the local vegetation and floristic similarities among the remaining areas in Central Brazil are still scarce (CARVALHO; DE MARCO JUNIOR;FERREIRA, 2009;GARCIA et al, 2011). The southern Goiás studied region is dominated by semideciduous seasonal forests, but their natural landscapes became a fragmented mosaic due to extensive cattle farming and agricultural activities that succeed in those rich basaltic originated soils (VIANA; TABANEZ; BATISTA, 1997;DE MARCO JUNIOR;FERREIRA, 2009).…”

“…A dissimilarity qualitative analysis was carried out by using the UPGMA (unweighted pair grouping method using arithmetic averages) linkage method and by Sørensen index (Legendre & Legendre 2012) regarding the selected fragments and literature data of seasonal forests in Goiás (Silva & Scariot 2003;Haidar et al 2005;Nascimento et al 2004;Imaña-Encinas et al 2007;Garcia et al 2011). The phytosociological parameters of horizontal structure (density, frequency, dominance and value of importance) were calculated for the woody communities in each fragment by using the Mata Nativa 2 software (CIENTEC 2004).…”

“…Knowledge about the floristic distribution patterns of seasonal forests could provide valuable information for conservation actions (Scariot & Sevilha 2000). The highest values of similarity of seasonal forests have been associated with the influence of nearby vegetation formations in northeastern and central Brazil (Garcia et al 2011;Santos et al 2012). However, there is a lack of studies comprising the seasonal forests in some regions of central Brazil such as the "mato grosso goiano" in northeastern Goiás and southern Tocantins.…”

“…(Forzza et al, 2012) DISTRIBUIÇÃO GEOGRÁFICA (Forzza et al, 2012) que Casearia sylvestris foi considerada uma espécie generalista com uma ampla distribuição geográfica que coloniza a partir da Floresta Atlântica para as comunidades de Cerrado do interior (Oliveira-Filho & Fontes 2000;Oliveira-Filho 2009;Garcia et al 2011). Quanto à afinidade com a Floresta Amazônica, esta possivelmente está relacionada à biogeografia do Bioma Savana, mais precisamente, o Cerrado.…”
