Description Although the Štramberk Karst is one of the most important botanical sites of the northeastern Moravia, the local forest vegetation has been poorly studied so far. For this reason, we conducted field sampling focusing on mesophilous forest vegetation, especially on the scree- and rock-outcrop forests. We recorded 16 phytosociological relevés and basic environmental variables of the plots. We divided our relevés into three main vegetation types using numerical analysis: beech forests, rock-outcrop forests and ravine forests. Among them, we distinguished six associations, four of them belonging to the alliance Tilio platyphylli-Acerion (1 to 4) and two of them to the alliance Fagion sylvaticae (5 and 6): (1) Aceri-Tilietum, (2) Arunco dioici-Aceretum, (3) Mercuriali perennis-Fraxinetum, (4) Seslerio albicantis-Tilietum, (5) Galio odorati-Fagetum and (6) Mercuriali perennis-Fagetum. Occurrence of the rare rock-outcrop forest association Seslerio albicantis-Tilietum is remarkable, since several endangered and relict species occur here (e.g. Laserpitium latifolium, Saxifraga paniculata, Scabiosa lucida subsp. calcicola). This is the first record of this association in the north-eastern Moravia.
