Supplementary Material

Appendix S1 in the supplemental material provides a list of all plant species sampled in our study organized alphabetically by their respective botanical families. The classification system for botanical families followed the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group system and scientific names were standardized according to the vascular flora of Cerrado biome and to the List of Species of the Brazilian Flora. In addition, Appendix S1 also includes the phytosociological parameters calculated for seedlings, saplings and adult categories. Appendix S2 presents the most important botanical families accordingly to the IV index. Appendix S3 shows the Non-metric Multidimensional Scaling scores (axes 1 and 2) for each tree species sampled in our study. This figure helps to evidence which species were responsible for explaining the main floristic variation captured by NMDS1 and NMDS2 axes.
