An example for local, local/landscape and landscape scale patterns in vegetation diversity, the conservation of which requires different strategies (A), and schematic scale-dependence of conservation strategies (above scale bar) and biodiversity levels (below scale bar), where darker colour indicates higher relevance (B). B is adapted from Lengyel et al. (in preparation).
