The phytodynamic component

Dynamic relationships among different units within a certain vegetation domain and also the conception of the potential vegetation or climax are complex and often subject of discussion. Both issues are usually based on incomplete or limited synchronous analysis or even on merely empirical considerations.

The MF2C does not deepen into such dynamic relationships in a direct way. But it shows an approach to their assessment based on the concept of Evolution Level (EL) (Ruiz de la Torre, 1990a, 1990b). The appli- cation of this concept to a specific vegetation patch aims to evaluate its organization and development degree, its diversity and the current use of basic resources (water, energy, nutrients) of the whole plant
