1 Clonality in the plant community In Chapter 5, B. Svensson, H. Rydin & B. Carlsson give an account of the processes and ecological significance of vegetative spread by clonal plants. They make clear that clonal spread is a form of dispersal – even if (diaspore) dispersal as discussed in Chapter 6 will be seen as dispersal proper. Clonality is largely an internal community process, but it may link a community to neighbouring communities, or still further away, as the chapter describes. Neighbour effects have long been recognized in phytosociology as vicinism (van der Maarel 1995).
These are generally bottom-up classifications where units are defined by sets of field observations where species occurrences and/or abundances were recorded. Vegetation classification has a rich history (discussed in Chapter 1) with the many and varied approaches reviewed in detail by Whittaker (1962, 1973), Shimwell (1971) and Mueller-Dombois & Ellenberg (1974). Subsequent synthetic overviews by Kent (2012), McCune & Grace (2002), and Wildi (2010) summarize, compare and evaluate commonly used methods.
