Galán de Mera, A.; Sánchez García, I.; Vicente Orellana, J. A.
A synsystematic revision of the coastal plant communities of the southwestern Iberian Peninsula has been made, based on 349 phytosociological relevés. After a numerical analysis with ordination (PCA) and classification, 19 groups of relevés have been defined. From those groups we deduce a new order, three new associations and one new subassociation: 0nonidetalia ramosissimae, Thymo albicantis-Stauracanthetum genistoidis, Verbasco litigiosi-Ononidetum ramosissimae, Verbasco martinezii-Ononidetum ramosissimae, and Asparago aphylli-Calicotometum villosae juniperetosum turbinatae. Furthermore, a revision of all the syntaxa has been made.
