This study assessed how plant species distribution patterns are linked to altitude, regional climate and geographic location in the Ethiopian moist montane forests. We show that the altitudinal effect on species diversity is strongly modified by seasonal variations in precipitation and temperature regimes, which are related to the geographic location of the different forest areas in Ethiopia.
