Abstract

`Concrete' (=local) biotas (floras/faunas) are considered here as the lowest level of floral/faunal organization of the biota. Each concrete biota consists of all species encountered in all habitats within a certain area around a basic locality. Thus, it may be expected that concrete biotas reflect both local ecological conditions and regional history of the flora/fauna. Concrete biotas can be regarded as elementary units which may be studied with respect to the factors affecting species composition at the local scale, and hence, may be considered as a `bridge' between the traditional floristics/faunistics and ecology.
