This is due to heterogeneous topography scree areas and rock outcrops. and differences in the composition of bedrocks, which As a result of DCA ordination, the relevés were seg- provide for the diversity of edaphic and hydrothermal regated into several groups representing ecological vari- habitat conditions.
