SYNTAXONOMIC STATUS OF THE CAUCASIAN ALPINE MEADOWS

K. KOROTKOV, E. BELONOVSKAYA

Abstract


The evidence for the placement of the Caucasian alliance of alpine meadows artd heaths Alchemillo caucasicae-Campanulion tridentatae among the West-European higher rank syntaxa Juncetea trifidi and Caricetalia curvulae is provided. Alternative points of view-a separate class introduction especially for these communities or their attribution to other existing syntaxa-are worse established.

Keywords


Alpine belt; syntaxonomy; plant communities; continental fusion; communities convergence
