Abstract

The Mediterranean communities in which Juniperus turbinata Guss. subsp. turbinata is the dominant taxon have been studied. The relevés were subjected to a correspondence analysis (DCA) and were arranged in a synthetic table. Two orders (Ephedro-Juniperetalia and Pistacio-Rhamnetalia alaterni), 8 alliances and 35 associations were distinguished. The application of the Code of Phytosociological Nomenclature allows us to propose some corrections and the following new syntaxa: Ephedro nebrodensis-Juniperion turbinatae, Coronillo ramosissimae-Juniperetum turbinatae, Warionio saharae-Antirrhinetum ramosissimi, Junipero turbinatae-Cupressetum atlanticae, Retamo dasycarpae-Juniperetum turbinatae, Bupleuro spinosi-Juniperetum turbinatae, Pistacio lentisci-Juniperetum turbinatae, Rhamno graecae-Ceratonion siliquae and Ephedro campylopodae-Juniperetum turbinatae.
