Description Downy oak forests are communities of thermophilous oak forests occurring on base-rich soils in warm and dry lowlands and hilly regions of Central Europe. Recent survey revealed several new sites on the south-eastern edge of the Bohemian Massif. The present study documents vegetation at three peripheral sites of downy oak forests located deep in the Bohemian Massif, on the boundary of the Vysočina region. Classification based on cluster analysis assigned most recorded relevés to a Quercion pubescenti-petraeae alliance. The study acknowledges the importance of thermophilous communities for the biodiversity of the Vysočina region.
