In terms of life forms, 9% were therophytes, 23% hemicryptophytes, 6% geophytes, 42% chamaephytes, 14% nanophanerophytes, 3% microphanerophytes, and 3% helophytes.
In life form spectra, liana and microphanerophyte species have increased, but epiphyte, megaphanerophyte, mesophanerophyte and chamaephyte species have been reduced in fragmented forests (Zhu et al., 2004, 2010).
The LMEB has some megaphanerophytes, more microphanerophytes, and conspicuously less hemicryptophytes and epiphytes than the other two forests.
The microphanerophytes and nanophanerophytes number is important in the shrub and herbaceous layers.
