Species identification Problems of plant identification present enormous difficulties to both students and more advanced researchers alike. For most developed regions, published floras exist, although even these require careful training in use. However, if students are just beginning their studies, it is best to keep to relatively simple local situations, where the flora may be well known. Where reliable identification is important, samples may be taken to the local expert or museum for identification.

This problem is most acute in the tropical regions of the world, and in particular in the tropical rain and moist forests and the tropical grasslands or savannas. Research over the past decades has shown that concepts of the plant community, succession and climax, diversity and species richness all require careful application and often drastic revision when dealing with tropical forest and savanna environments. It is also increasingly argued that many of the conceptual and practical problems in the ecology of non-tropical areas of the world may be solved by research carried out in the tropics.

For some factors, the site will be near the central, most abundant part of the curve and those environmental conditions will be near optimal. For others, it may be at or near the extremes. The points that are near to the ends of a response curve for a species are of great significance, because if one of the points is at or beyond the limits of the curve, the conditions will be too unfavourable for the species to grow. The factor for which this occurs is known as the master limiting factor. However, since several environmental factors determine the growth of a plant, unfavourable conditions for a species in terms of one factor may sometimes be compensated for by another.
