The endemic species were the only chorotype that was positively correlated to two habitats that are relicts of the original Sicilian vegetation: clearings in deciduous thermophilic forest (Rhamno alaterni-Quercetum ilicis subassociation Pistacietosum terebinthi) and Ampelodesmetum meadows (Helictotrico convoluti-Ampelodesmetum mauritanici). Prevailing wind direction and seasonality were determining factors for orchid distribution. Identification of the correlation patterns between chorological types and habitats could be useful for predicting species presence within areas with similar biogeographical characteristics, facilitate species mapping and serve as a tool for the design and implementation of conservation strategies.
