This volume offers distribution maps of over 2200 individual species living in the Dolomite
area, presenting detailed records on the local range of every species growing in the area
studied, from the Puster Valley to the Piave River. The data was collected on the basis of
a multiple field observations carried out over several decades. After dividing the area into
approx. 200 quadrants, a nearly complete census of the species present was obtained
for each quadrant. The evaluation and synopsis of this extensive set of data, which is
presented in the form of a chorological atlas in keeping with international standard
methods, allows the area to be accurately compared with other parts of the Alps. In
addition to the chorological atlas and floristic inventory, a list of synonyms and toponyms
of the three languages used in the analyzed territory, an expanded list of updated
scientific names, and some helpful remarks on various Dolomites species are included.
Lastly, the book explores how species can be considered as landscape bioindicators.
This third volume of the work Plant Life of the Dolomites complements the main volume
Vegetation Structure and Ecology and the volume Vegetation Tables, which presents
essential data at the plant association level.
