Article Title: New associations in Nirului Plain
Authors: Adriana Oprea, Aurel Ardelean
Affiliation: “Vasile Goldis” West University Arad, Romania
Abstract: The local factors of relief, microclimate and especially the pedological factors determined the appearance of many specific associations which are missing from the vegetation of geomorphological units adjacent to Nirului Plain. The vegetation of Nirului Plain, is made up of a series of primary and secondary associations. Some phytocenoses – of semifixed sands, of marsh and forest – which used to occupy large surfaces, are now present on limited spaces. Following the research into the vegetal layer of Nirului Plain, we identified a number of 53 associations of which 4 are new vegetal associations for the researched area: Botriochloetum (Andropogonetum) ischaemi Kristiansen 1937 Pop 1977, Onopordion acanthii Br. – Bl. et al. 1936, Ambrosietum artemisiifoliae Viţalariu 1973, Calamagrostietum epigei Juraszek 1928.
Keywords: ruderal plants, vegetation of sands, floristic elements, fallow grounds, phytocenoses, xeromesophyll
