  1. The mean values of the qualitative and quantitative similarity (± standard deviation) among groups of sampling sites are presented at component (C) and infracommunity (I) levels. Data in the upper triangle are Jaccard’s similarity index values. Data in the lower triangle are values of the percentage of similarity index.
