     ellenberg indicator values (eiv) have been widely used to estimate habitat variables from floristic data and to predict vegetation composition based on habitat properties. geographical information systems (gis) and digital elevation models (dem) are valuable tools for studying the relationships between topographic and ecological characters of river systems. a 3-meter resolution dem was derived for a. 3-km-long break section of the szum river (se poland) from a 1:10,000 topographic map. data on the diversity and ecological requirements of the local vascular flora were obtained while making floristic charts for 32 sections of the river valley (each 200 m long) and physical and chemical soil measurements; next, the data were translated into eiv. the correlations of the primary and secondary topographic attributes of the valley, species richness, and eiv (adapted for the polish vascular flora) were assessed for all species recognized in each valley section. the total area and proportion of a flat area, mean slope, slope curvature, solar radiation (srad), and topographic wetness index (twi) are the most important factors influencing local flora richness and diversity. the highest correlations were found for three ecological indicators, namely light, soil moisture, and soil organic content. the dem seems to be useful in determination of correlations between topographic and ecological attributes along a minor river valley.
