We aimed to assess which environmental factors (soil, flooding and topography) better explain the variation in floristic composition and structure of Amazonian white-sand vegetations (Campinaranas). Although soils are predominantly sandy and oligotrophic, our findings highlighted the importance of soil texture and fertility in structuring plant communities of seasonally flooded white-sand vegetations at mesoscales in the Amazon Basin.
