No reference here to the Wikipedia entries Ecozone Biome and Ecoregion; these need to be integrated with this still somewhat isolated entry. --Wetman 05:21, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)

It would be nice to have these provinces mapped out. QuinnHK 21:31, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

phytochorion versus floristic province versus ?[edit]

Can someone try to explain the difference between these terms (and perhaps others)? Based on the definition I found for phytochorion, it seems to refer to something like oak-hickory forest, rather than the coarser areas which form floristic provinces (much less regions or kingdoms). But am I right about this? Do people call them phytochoria in Africa and other terms elsewhere? The term phytochorion shows up in a search often enough for me to believe it is not just in use by a tiny set of people, but I'm not sure how widely or in what context, or whether we even are using it correctly in this article.

Removal of cats[edit]

There are no Category:Flora of California or Category:Flora of Oregon so I changed "regions of" to "geography of", as this is not a region except as defined by one specific field. Confusion of different kinds of fields is an endemic problem throughout and across WikiProjects and their associated series of articles.....Skookum1 (talk) 21:17, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh, OK, there are flora categories, I'll amend....Skookum1 (talk) 21:18, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Non-existing Adriatic Floristic Region[edit]

There is no such a thing as an Adriatic Floristic Region, or anything alike. Nor anybody can talk of Mediterranean floristic up to Gulf of Venice. It cannot even be: Mediterranean climate ends in Istria in the east, and Conero in the west (yes it is asymmetric). So there is a big difference, generally speaking between North and Central-South Adriatic, and they cannot be included in the same region, type or whatever. I am from Venice region and I lived 3 years in South-Western Slovakia, and I call tell you that flora is more or less the same. The map is therefore wrong: maybe we could include North Adriatic in Submediterranean type, since there are indeed a few small microclimate areas (southern ridges of hills, or e.g. Lake Garda) where olive trees and other Mediterranean flora can grow. But all of the Venetian plain and shoreline cannot support Mediterranean flora - nor they have - because of hostile climate (cold and foggy winters, and hot but wet/rainy summers); out of course of gardens, where Mediterranean flora can be grown but has to be protected from winter cold and does not give any fruit (like grande olive trees). I therefore suggest to discard the map too, unless it can be changed with a more precise one. Filippo83 (talk) 11:30, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
