Abstract

In this study, the phytosociological features on the Çiçek Mountain (Isparta province) were investigated. The vegetation of the area was analyzed using a 3-dimensional ordination technique based on the Braun- Blanquet method. Six plant associations were determined belonging to forest, steppe, and rock vegetation and classified syntaxonomically. The identified associations were examined from the nomenclatural, floristical, ecological, and chorological point of view. Associations and its higher units are as follows: Quercetea-Pubescentis Doing-Kraft ex Scamoni & Passarage 1959
Querco-Cedretalia libani Barbéro, Loisel & Quézel 1974
Abieto-Cedrion Akman, Barbéro & Quézel 1977
Querco vulcanicae-Cedretum libani ass. nova
Adenocarpo complicatii-Pinetum nigrae Serin, 1996
Tilio platyphylli-Abietum isauricae ass. nova
Asphodelino anatolicae-Juniperetum excelsae ass. nova
Astragalo-Brometea Quézel 1973 em. Parolly
Onobrychido armenae-Thymetalia leucostomi Akman, Ketenoğlu, Quézel & Demirörs 1984
Phlomido armeniacae-Astragalion microcephali Ketenoğlu, Akman, Quézel & Demirörs 1984
Tanaceto cadmei-Brometum tomentelli ass. nova
Asplenietea trichomanis (Br.-Bl. in Meier et Br.-Bl. 1934) corr. Oberd. 1977
Silenetalia odontopetalae Quézel 1973
Silenion odontopetalae Quézel 1973
Valeriano oliganthae-Centauretum mucroniferae ass. nova
