A New Forest Association in Hungary: Thermophilous Dry Oakwood on Rubble (Paeonio Banaticae-Quercetum Cerridis Kevey Ass. Nova)

Published Online: 10 Jul 2007
Page range: 5 - 59

Abstract

A New Forest Association in Hungary: Thermophilous Dry Oakwood on Rubble (<italic>Paeonio Banaticae-Quercetum Cerridis</italic> Kevey Ass. Nova)

In this paper a relic and edaphic (azonal) forest association new to science (Paeonio banaticae-Quercetum cerridis) is described and characterized. This association is compared by traditional phytosociological methods to associations with which it is in physical contact in the Eastern Mecsek Hills (Southwest Hungary). Stands of Paeonio banaticae-Quercetum cerridis occur on steep slopes with southern exposition between 280-640 m. The forest soil contains a large amount of rocks and rubble, and is slowly drifting. The microclimate of the forest is conducive to the survival of many species with submediterranean distribution. One of them is the endemic Paeonia banatica whose largest populations occur in this forest type. The new association is placed in the alliance Quercion farnetto I. Horvat 1954 and suballiance Quercenion farnetto Kevey in Kevey & Borhidi 2005.

Diversity of Dry Grasslands in the Považský Inovec MTS (slovakia) - A Numerical Analysis

Abstract

Diversity of Dry Grasslands in the Považský Inovec MTS (slovakia) - A Numerical Analysis

The paper reveals a numerical and ecological analysis of 128 published relevés of xerothermic vegetation of the Považský Inovec Mts. Four associations have been recognised: Festuco valesiacae-Stipetum capillatae Sillinger 1930, Festuco pallentis-Caricetum humilis Sillinger 1930 corr. Gutermann et Mucina 1993, Poo badensis-Festucetum pallentis Klika 1931 corr. Zólyomi 1966 nom. invers. propos. and Minuartio setaceae-Seslerietum coeruleae Klika 1931 nom. mut. propos. Through the numerical methods, the study reconsiders the conception of the dry grassland associations, which are traditionally used in phytocoenological literature. It also defines the indication taxa group of the associations and characterises their environmental conditions. Major environmental gradients influencing the vegetation were interpreted using average Ellenberg indication values. Finally, the classification within the higher vegetation units, the nomenclature of the associations and the environmental threats are discussed.

New Grassland Association Triseto-Centaureetum Macroptili ASS. Nova in Slovenia

Published Online: 10 Jul 2007
Page range: 77 - 89

Abstract

New Grassland Association <italic>Triseto-Centaureetum Macroptili</italic> ASS. Nova in Slovenia

The work describes the community of improved meadows that thrives on the elevated parts of alluvia and sometimes marshes, on the sites above the flooded areas. These stands were found and recorded in the sub-Pannonian and pre-Dinaric areas of Slovenia. The relevés were compared with other similar communities from the alliance Arrhenatherion Koch 1926 as well as some of the ecological characteristics. A new association named Triseto-Centaureetum macroptili ass. nova is here proposed. It was classified into alliance Arrhenatherion and order Arrhenatheretalia R. Tx 1931. The characters of the order Molinietalia Koch 1926 are also common, which reflects the transitional environmental conditions of those sites. The association thrives on deposits, predominantly on levees, where the soil is permeable for water. The material from these meadows, which are mown once to twice a year, is used for fodder and not for litter, which confirms their classification.

Palynologic and Lithostratigraphic Research of Lacustrine, Marsh and Fluvial Quaternary Deposits in Rašica Dolina and Mišja Dolina, and on Radensko Polje

Abstract

Palynologic and Lithostratigraphic Research of Lacustrine, Marsh and Fluvial Quaternary Deposits in Rašica Dolina and Mišja Dolina, and on Radensko Polje

The article deals with the results of palynological and stratigraphical research of lacustrine, marsh and fluvial Quaternary deposits in the Rašica dolina and Mišja dolina, and on Radensko polje. Correlation with equivalent Quaternary deposits and their palynoflora from the Grosuplje polje area was also performed. In the study area, Mesozoic, predominantly carbonate rocks are transgressively covered by Quaternary deposits which are in general composed of five lithostratigraphic units (from bottom to top): 1. gravel, 2. grey lacustrine clay, 3. reddish brown loam, 4. light grey marly clay and 5. alluvial marsh deposits. On the basis of pollen analysis the Quaternary sediments of the study area are chronostratigraphically classified to the Late or Middle Pleistocene and Holocene.
