Introduction

This paper is a catalogue of all syntaxa from class to association ever described and recognized in Spain and Portugal (Iberian Peninsula, Balearic, Madeira, Azorean and Canary Islands), according with Braun-Blanquet approach (Braun-Blanquet 1964, Dierschke 1994) and the International Code of Phytosociological Nomenclature (Weber, Moravec & Théurillat 2000). The literature contents near all the publications cited in this paper, particularly those of portuguese and spanish syntaxa authors. The "Syntaxonomical Checklist" has been prepared during the last ten years as a bassis of the Luso-Hispaniae Prodromus of the Plant Communities (in progress), to increase the European Vegetation Survey (Rodwell, Mucina, Pignatti, Schaminée & Chytrý 1997), and to develop the phytosociological knowledges in the interpretation and evaluation of European Habitat Directive for conservation and management purposes.

Contents:

  1. Alphabetic list of the vascular vegetation classes of Europe
  2. Ecological systematization of the vascular vegetation classes of Europe
  3. Syntaxonomical check-list to association level of Spain and Portugal (Iberian Peninsula, Balearic, Madeira, Azorean and Canary Islands)
    1. Floating or rooted submerged aquatic vegetation
    2. Amphibious vegetation of fresh-waters, springs and fens
    3. Coastal and continental halophilous and sand dune vegetation
    4. Chasmophytic, epiphytic and scree vegetation
    5. Synanthropic, fringe and megaforbic vegetation
    6. Supratimberline climactical zonal vegetation on cryophilous geliturbated soils
    7. Grassland and meadow vegetation
    8. Heathland, dwarf scrub and scrub vegetation
    9. Forest, woodland, semidesert and desert potential natural vegetation
  4. Index of syntaxa names
  5. References
