Vegetation classification of acidophilous oak forests in Slovakia

Michal Slezák, Milan Valachovič, Drahoš Blanár, František Máliš, Dusan Senko & Hubert Žarnovičan
Acidophilous oak forests are species-poor forest plant communities usually growing on mineral-poor geological and soil substrates. We compiled a large data set of 263 phytosociological relevés assigned to the Quercion roboris alliance in Slovakia to produce the first syntaxonomical revision at national level. Modified Twinspan algorithm was applied for numerical classification and identifica-tion of basic vegetation units. To find main environmental gradients governing species composition, unconstrained ordination method (Detrended Correspondence analysis; DCA) was used. Floristic...

Species-rich grasslands of the Apuseni Mts (Romania):role of traditional farming and local ecological knowledge

Monika Janišová, Alina Biro, Anamaria Iuga, Pavel Širka & Iveta Škodová
Traditional low-intensity farming died out in almost all European countries but is well maintained in the Romanian Carpathians. The main aim of our interdisciplinary study was to document traditional farming systems and local ecological knowledge in the colline and sub-montane zone of the Apuseni Mts and to relate this information to recent grassland plant diversity. We performed a detailed botanical and ethnological research at two sites within the Dobrești (site Dobrești) and Bratca (site Ponoară)...
