Abstract

http://dx.doi.org/)

A numerical analysis is presented of the species composition of 20 assumed natural areas of N Morocco, using a similarity matrix of the distribution of 3113 taxa and a k-means partitive cluster analysis. The results largely support the phytogeographical divisions of N Morocco proposed by Sauvage & Vindt and by Dobignard.
