Illyrian Pre-Alpine Fir and beech Forests - The Association Homogyno Sylvestris-Fagetum Marinček et al. 1993

Published Online: 10 Jan 2008
Page range: 111 - 129

Abstract

Illyrian Pre-Alpine Fir and beech Forests - The Association <italic>Homogyno Sylvestris-Fagetum</italic> Marinček et al. 1993

The work deals with the association Homogyno sylvestris-Fagetum in the pre-Alpine region of Slovenia. The communitis were classified into a geographical race typica and divided into six subassociations: typicum subass. nova, mercurialetosum perennis subass. nova, festucetosum altissimae subass. nova, calamagrostietosum variae subass. nova, luzuletosum sylvaticae subass. nova and vaccinietosum myrtilli subass. nova. The results are shown in the analytical table, as well as in two diagrams.

The Association Erysimo - Trifolietum Micev. 1977 in Bulgaria and Some Remarks on its Mediterranean Character

Published Online: 10 Jan 2008
Page range: 131 - 141

Abstract

The Association <italic>Erysimo - Trifolietum</italic> Micev. 1977 in Bulgaria and Some Remarks on its Mediterranean Character

We endeavor to enlarge the knowledge about Bulgarian vegetation diversity. Data on seminatural grasslands containing 344 relevés, collected in Southeast Bulgaria were analyzed by the combine method, using TWIN-SPAN and the Cocktail method. The Erysimo diffusii-Trifolietum angustifolii association and the alliance Trifolion cherleri were established for the first time in Bulgaria. So far the presence of this association was known for Macedonia. The aims of our study are to present more data about the Erysimo-Trifolietum in Bulgaria and to make some comments about its affiliation to Helianthemetea guttati. The association is characterized ecologically and floristically. Analysis of the floristic elements shows that the most numerous are sub-Mediterranean species. Analysis of the life forms shows that these communities are hemicryptophyte-therophytic. A review of syntaxonomical systems and association assignment to higher syntaxa were made. According to current European vege-tation surveys the association should be related to class Helianthemetea guttati. Our results reveal an intermediate character of the studied vegetation - closed dry grasslands, with distinct presence of Festuco-Brometea species with a high percent of therophytes and Mediterranean floristic elements related to Helianthemetea guttati as well.

Viola Pyrenaica Ramond Ex Dc in the Northern Part of the Dinaric Mountains (The Plateaus of Trnovski Gozd and Nanos, Slovenia)

Abstract

<italic>Viola Pyrenaica</italic> Ramond Ex Dc in the Northern Part of the Dinaric Mountains (The Plateaus of Trnovski Gozd and Nanos, Slovenia)

The article describes new localities of a south-European montane species Viola pyrenaica in the Julian Alps and in the Trnovski gozd and Nanos plateaus (the northern part of the Dinaric mountains). It has been established that in the localities known so far in Slovenia, the species grows on similar sites as elsewhere in the Alps and other mountain ranges of the Balkan Peninsula, above all on overgrown screes, stony grasslands, on forest edges, in light forests on stony ground and in tall herb communities on calcareous bedrock in the submontane, montane and subalpine belt (450 to 1600 m a.s.l.). The floristic composition of the communities in which it grows is presented in four tables. On the Trnovski gozd plateau it was found in various successional stages of abandoned pastures or grasslands of the association Genisto sericeae-Seslerietum kalnikensis and in open coppice stands of hop hornbeam and flowering ash, which are classified into the association Seslerio autumnalis-Ostryetum carpinifoliae.

Sand-Dune Vegetation of Igneada Coast in the Thracian Part of Turkey

Abstract

Sand-Dune Vegetation of Igneada Coast in the Thracian Part of Turkey

Igneada is located in the northwest part of Turkey on the Black Sea coast and it is also near the national border between Turkey and Bulgaria. The Igneada region was accepted as one of the most important plant areas of Turkey. In this work, a study was made on the phytosociological structure of Igneada sand dune vegetation, which is the one of the important components of the richness in the region. At the end of the assessment of the data, 3 communities were defined. These communities are Otantho-Leymetum sabulosi, Medicago rigidula-Cionura erecta basal community and meadow behind the sand dune. The part of the sand dune closest to the sea has width of 30 m, ascends with a specific inclination and has no vegetation coverage. Behind this part, Otantho-Leymetum sabulosi occurs at places where the sand dune has an unstable structure. The Medicago rigidula-Cionura erecta basal community appears behind Otantho-Leymetum sabulosi and the sand dune has a stable structure at these areas. Behind these communities, another vegetation belt occurs, formed by the species that are cosmopolite or characteristic for meadow vegetation.

The Association Hyperico-Euphorbietum Glabriflorae Rexhepi 1978 in the Serpentine Terrains of Drenica Mountain

Abstract

The Association <italic>Hyperico-Euphorbietum Glabriflorae</italic> Rexhepi 1978 in the Serpentine Terrains of Drenica Mountain

In the territory of Kosovo there are many serpentine mountain massifs. The largest complexes are found in the valley of the Ibër River, and the same are continued in a discontinuous chain through Koznica and Golesh to the southwest of the territory of Kosovo. Vegetation on the serpentine bedrock is rich in rare species and communities, which cannot be found in the Balkans and Europe. The communities appearing on the serpentine bedrock are characteristic and important for science. They are endemic due to the presence of endemic species in their species composition. Drenica Mountain (1051 m) is part of the Central Kosovo Mountains. These terrains are situated in the central part of Kosovo, between Çiçavica, Kosovo plain (Golesh), Llapusha, the Carraleva Mountains and the Anadrini region. A considerable part of these areas consists of serpentine bedrock, which is covered by interesting flora and vegetation. In the vegetation of Drenica Mountain 10 communities have been identified. Two of them are found on serpentine bedrock: ass. Hyperico-Euphorbietum glabriflorae and ass. Potentillo-Fumanetum bonapartei. These communities belong to the open space, and are also located in other parts of Kosovo, but only on serpentine bedrock. On Drenica Mountain there are two localities where these two communities appear. In this paper we focus in particular on ass. Hyperico-Euphorbietum glabriflorae

Subalpine Beech Forest with Hairy Alpenrose (<italic>Polysticho Lonchitis-Fagetum Rhododendretosum Hirsuti</italic> Subass. Nova) on Mt. Snežnik (Liburnian Karst, Dinaric Mts)

Subalpine beech stands with Hairy Alpenrose (Rhododendron hirsutum) were phytosociologically studied on Mt. Snežnik (Dinaric Mts). They thrived on stony and steep slopes of northern exposure. Comparisons with other subalpine Beech stands (Polysticho lonchitis-Fagetum s. lat.), Dinaric Fir-Beech stands with Hairy Alpen-rose (Omphalodo-Fagetum s. lat. rhododendretosum hirsuti), and prealpine fir-beech stands with Hairy Alpenrose (Homogyno sylvestris-Fagetum s. lat. rhododendretosum hirsuti), stands of Hairy Alpenrose and Beech (Rhododendro hirsuti-Fagetum s. lat.), as well as Austrian subalpine beech stands (Saxifrago rotundifoliae-Fagetum s. lat.) showed their unique floristical composition due to ecological conditions, and thus distinct syntaxonomical position within the association Polysticho-Fagetum. Therefore, a new subassociation Polysticho-Fagetum rhododendretosum hirsuti subass. nova was described, and - as differential species for the subassociation - Rhododendron hirsutum, Rubus saxatilis, Rosa pendulina, and Clematis alpina were chosen.
