Variation in species composition was assessed for four different groups of woody plants by calculating the relative positions of sites along the axes of a non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) ordination, based on the Jaccard abundance-based dissimilarity index. See methods for definition of plant groups and sample areas. Equation type and regression statistics are provided in Table 2.
