Udział gatunków synantropijnych w zbiorowiskach z klasy Quercetea robori-petraeae Br.-Bl. et R.Tx. 1943 w Sudetach i na ich Przedgórzu. Occurrence of synanthropic species in forest communities of the class Quercetea robori-petraeae Br.-Bl. et R.Tx. 1943 in the Sudetes Mountains and foothills

<p>In 2009 and 2010, monitoring of conservation status and future prospects of the forest communities of Quercetea robori-petraeae Br.-Bl. et R.Tx. 1943 class was conducted in the Sudetes and their foothills. 31 sites were selected. At each site, three phytosociological releves were collected. An important component of the global assessment of oak forest communities is the occurrence of synanthropic species as measured by three indicators: occurrence of alien species (kenophytes), occurrence of synanthropic native species (apophytes) and occurrence of geographically alien tree species. At most sites, alien species and native expansive species were not observed or were represented by single specimens. For each site and releve, the index of synanthropization was calculated. The main role in the synanthropization of the investigated acidophilous oak forests is played by apophytes. The values for the synanthropization index suggest that this process is not advanced. However. the impact of synanthropization on species richness and floristic diversity of communities within oak forests is noticeable.</p>
