Plant diversity within the Serengeti ecosystem is often overlooked. A logical focus is on broad factors such as climate, topographic heterogeneity and fire frequency. Subsequently, the issue of compositional stability through time and space and what factors may influence the turnover of species through time. The chapter concludes by comparing plant diversity in the savanna/grassland habitats of Serengeti to other, similar grassland and savanna systems around the world.
