Käller, Anna, 2001. Vegetation-environment interactions in a boreonemoral forest in east central Sweden. SLU, Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment, Uppsala. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment



The purposes of this study were to describe the vegetation, and to find out how vegetation
and environment interact in a boreo-nemoral forest in east central Sweden, and to use the
species data set to evaluate a newly produced and earlier not evaluated species
composition prediction model. The importance of different environmental variables on the
species composition and variation was investigated and analysed using multivariate
methods. The most important variables for the species composition in this area were tree
crown cover, shade and soil moisture. However, much of the variation was not explained
by the environmental variables used in this study. Ellenberg indicator indices for pH,
nitrogen content, light and soil moisture gave a low correlation to measured values. The
prediction model failed to predict the species composition in the area.
