How land use legacy affect woody plant species in an urban area?

What is it about?

We explore the influence of land use legacy on species composition and functional diversity of woody plants in a city.

Why is it important?

Plant species in current land use are affected by prior land use. This effect is detectable in both taxonomic diversity and functional diversity.
