abstract

Vegetational landscape of a Pre-Appenine area located in central Italy: the “Bosco dei Monaci Bianchi” in the Marche (Italy). We here present a phytosociological and geo-sinphytosociological study of the plant biodiversity of the “ Bosco dei Monaci Bianchi”, a little wood in the hilly area of the Marche Region. This biotope is particularly interesting, because is one of the few natural islands present in a district characterized by a strong human pressure. Some associations of Querco-Fagetea and Quercetea ilicis are found: Fraxino excelsioris-Aceretum obtusati, with the new sub-association ruscetosum hypoglossi, Aro italici-Alnetum glutinosae, Ornithogalo sphaerocarpi-Aceretum pseudoplatani, Lonicero xylostei-Quercetum cerridis, Roso sempervirentis-Quercetum pubescentis e Cyclamino hederifolii-Quercetum ilicis. This study has, also, allowed the recognition of the other plant communities that are in chain or dynamic contact with the woodland associations
