Zambezi Basin Wetlands Volume II : Chapter 1 – Wetland Vegetation Types
Vegetation, or communities of plants, form structural units – habitats – which, in many cases, determine what other organisms can live or feed in an area. Vegetation, through its species composition as well as structure, also provides an excellent integration of environmental factors in that it reflects the climatic, physiographic, edaphic and biotic features pertaining to the land where it grows (Timberlake et al. 1993). From this it can be seen that an understanding of the vegetation of an area – its composition, structure and distribution – is fundamental in assessing biodiversity.
