(inclination, woody encroachment and disturbance) Objectives We assessed the effects of landscape and in 82 grassland islands in Hungary. habitat ﬁlters on the species richness, abundance and Results Isolation decreased the abundance of good trait composition of grassland specialist and generalist disperser specialist plants due to the lack of directional plants in small habitat islands. We studied traits vectors transferring seeds between suitable habitat related to functional spatial connectivity (dispersal patches. Clonality was an effective strategy, but ability by wind and animals) and temporal persistent seed bank did not support the survival of
