Description Using the Braun-Blanquet approach, a syntaxonomical revision of the order of Quercetalia pubescenti-petraeae, based on the synthesis of 634 relevés, distinguished three alliances of the thermophilous oak forests in the Czech Republic: (1) Quercion pubescenti-petraeae (3 communities: Pruno mahaleb--Quercetum pubescentis, Lathyro versicoloris-Quercetum pubescentis, Corno-Quercetum), which includes peri-alpine and peri-Carpathian oak forests on calcareous bedrock, (2) Aceri tatarici-Quercion (2 communities: Quercetum pubescenti-roboris, Carici fritschii-Quercetum roboris), which comprises Pontic-Pannonian oak forests on loess or sand that occur in southern Moravia only, (3) Quercion petraeae (5 communities: Potentillo albae-Quercetum, Brachypodium pinnatum-Quercus robur community, Sorbo torminalis-Quercetum, Genisto pilosae-Quercetum petraeae, Asplenio cuneifolii-Quercetum petraeae), which includes Central European thermophilous oak forests distributed outside the range of Quercus pubescens and some other submediterranean species.
