Formalized phytosociological classification of geographically stratified relevés of trampled vegetation from the Czech Republic was performed using the Cocktail method. Delimitation of vegetation units recently identified in the traditional phytosociological system in the country was revised and finally eight associations (Herniarietum glabrae, Sagino procumbentis-Bryetum argentei, Poëtum annuae, Lolio perennis-Matricarietum suaveolentis, Matricario discoideae-Polygonetum arenastri, Eragrostio minoris-Polygonetum avicularis, Poo annuae-Coronopodetum squamati, Sclerochloo durae-Polygonetum arenastri) were defined by formal definitions. The concept of the class Polygono arenastri-Poëtea annuae including trampled vegetation dominated by therophytes was accepted in the new vegetation survey. The ecological differentiation of particular communities and their classification into phytosociological alliances within the class was illustrated using Ellenberg indicator values and indirect gradient analysis (DCA). The present classification of trampled vegetation was compared with national vegetation surveys in other European countries.

More about this publication?
  • Phytocoenologia (ISSN 0340-269X) is an international, peer-reviewed journal of plant community ecology. It is devoted to vegetation survey and classification at any organizational and spatial scale and without restriction to certain methodological approaches. The journal publishes original papers that develop new vegetation typologies as well as applied studies that use such typologies, for example, in vegetation mapping, ecosystem modelling, nature conservation, land use management or monitoring. Particularly encouraged are methodological studies that design and compare tools for vegetation classification and mapping, such as algorithms, databases and nomenclatural principles. Papers dealing with conceptual and theoretical bases of vegetation survey and classification are also welcome. While large-scale studies are preferred, regional studies will be considered when filling important knowledge gaps or presenting new methods.

    Phytocoenologia was founded by Reinhold Tüxen in 1973 and is published in collaboration with the International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS; The journal closely cooperates with various subgroups of IAVS and serves as publication outlet for their workshops as well as for selected sessions of the IAVS Symposia. It contains special sections on “Phytosociological Nomenclature” and “Ecoinformatics”. Guest-edited Special Features that fall within the scope of the journal are also published.
