FLORISTICS

DESCRIPTION

Floristics is an aspect of phytogeography dedicated to cataloguing the taxa or the systematic specimens in a region, i.e., what we commonly call the flora within a given territory, as well as studying its distribution. Studies in floristics provide a foundation to knowledge concerning the plant biodiversity in a particular terrain, and this is essential to develop plant conservation strategies.

The most common way in which floristic studies are made involve in-depth land surveys, in this respect, and subsequently floristic inventories are written up. Also, plant samples are collected, which are duly prepared and dried, to be preserved in herbariums as a testimony to taxon distribution and forming the basic material on which to base biosystematic plant studies.
