A bioclimatic study of the island of Hierro was carried out, concluding with the establishment of the different bioclimatic belts for the island and delimitation of the potential area of its climatophilous vegetation series. Releves were done and terminal associations of these series are described. New associations are: Rubio fruticosae Euphorbietum balsamiferae, Aeonio valverdensis-Euphorbietum canariensis, Bystropogono ferrensis-Pinetum canariensis and Echio hierrensis-Retametum rhodorhizoidis.
