Outwardly it's basically a urban of evasion, of conventionalities, sated with the regular pleasures of existence, listless, blasé even, and continuously exquisitely, albeit frigidly, courteous; yet underneath the nonetheless, artful floor unusual currents play at move reasons, intrigue is unending, and the cruel conflict of international relations is going on unceasingly. sometimes, purely sometimes, a bubble involves the outside, and while it bursts the echo is going crashing round the earth. occasionally a dynasty is shaken, a country trembles, a ministry topples over; however the ripple strikes and all is placid back.

It is this well-blended, historical mix of people, ideas, and methods that formed the early textbooks on vegetation measurement by Rexford Daubenmire (1968) and Dieter Mueller-Dombois and Heinz Ellenberg (1974).

Daubenmire also championed correlative studies to summarize relatively accurate environmental records in relation to both community and individual species with a narrow range of working hypotheses as to the factors determining community and species limits. However, it is somewhat difficult today to imagine how information on community and species limits could be gained by restricting studies to relatively pure, homogeneous stands in complex, heterogeneous landscapes. cgi).

Trees less than 1 m tall are counted in two 1 m wide belt transects along the long axis of the center 5 m × 25 m plot, and the frequency and cover of shrubs and herbs (by species) are recorded in 20 cm × 50 cm quadrats spaced at 1 m intervals overlaying the belt transects. It was suggested that understory species not encountered in the quadrats also be recorded (but there is little evidence this was done often by Daubenmire or those that followed him).
