Du cote negatif s'installent les taxons le plus contributifs, de nature biologique variees: geophyte (Arisarum vulgare -1.69), hemicryptophyte (Sedum acre -1.54) associes aux therophytes (Aegilops triuncialis -2.04, Trifolium stellatum -1.69) indiquant ainsi un gradient croissant pre-foret allant du cote positif au cote negatif.
Significant statistical differences (using the same test) were also noted between the cerrado (except the rocky outcrop cerrado) and caatinga, and between the cerrado and the cerrado-caatinga transition for the hemicryptophyte.

La classification des types biologique prend en compte la position de bourgeon de renovation du vegetal par rapport au sol durant la periode froide est permet de reconnaitre 5 types biologiques, definis par Raunkiaer (1934) selon la nature morphologique et qui sont: phanerophyte, chamaephyte, hemicryptophyte, geophytes et therophytes.
