Abstract

Coefficients of Conservatism and the Floristic Quality Index can be used to assess potential damage to plants and plant communities as a result of anthropogenic disturbances. This has benefit because it may be more powerful than an opinion and more easily understood and trusted by non-botanists and land use decision-makers.
