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...
