TY - JOUR TI - Floristic diversity of beech, fir and spruce forest (Piceo-Fago-Abietetum Čolić 1965) in the „Tara“ national park AU - Cvjetićanin Rade AU - Novaković Marijana JN - Glasnik Sumarskog fakulteta PY - 2010 IS - 102 SP - 129 EP - 143 PT- Article AB- This paper deals with the forest plant community of beech, fir and spruce (Piceo-Fago-Abietetum Čolić 1965), which is the most widely distributed plant community on the territory of national park „Tara“. Spectrum of life forms and floristic elements are specified for this community. Spectrum of life forms shows that hemicryptophytes are the most frequent, with high occurrence of geophytes, which is characteristic of this mesophilous plant community. Spectrum of floristic elements show that centraleuropean floristic element is dominant and that this plant community is under strong influence of subcentraleuropean region. Five subassociations are set apart on the basis of floristic composition and site conditions: typicum, drymetosum, aceretosum, pinetosum silvestrae and vaccinietosum. Spectrum of life forms is made for every subassociation separately in aim to compare their floristic compositions. Subassociations aceretosum and vaccinietosum are characterized by the highest occurence of phanerophytes, and the lowest occurence of this life form is represented in subassociation drymetosum. The highest occurence of geophytes is in subassociation aceretosum, and the lowest in pinetosum silvestrae and vaccinietosum. Occurence of hemicryptophytes is the highest in subassociations drymetosum and pinetosum silvestrae, and the lowest in aceretosum. Subassociation typicum is stable plant community, subassociations drymetosum and vaccinietosum grow on poorer sites, while subassociations aceretosum and pinetosum silvestrae represent degradation of beech, fir and spruce forest (Piceo-Fago-Abietetum Čolić 1965).
