Flora e vegetazione costiera in Albania

Mullaj A., Ruci B., Vangjeli J.

The coastal vegetation of Albania comprises a narrow belt along the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, with a total length of 476 km from north to south. The objective of this work is to study the flora and vegetation of sandy dunes, salt marshes, rocky coasts and Mediterranean pine forests. On the basis of field surveys, a phytosociological classification of the Albanian coastal vegetation is provided for the first time through the European standard methods of phytosociology (Zurich-Montpellier). The coastal communities of Albania are poor in endemisms and generally similar to relevant vegetation types elsewhere in the Mediterranean. The most peculiar coastal vegetation in Albania is that of the rocky coasts and Mediterranean pine forests, rich in endemic and relict taxa (Aster albanicus Degen subsp. paparistoi Qosja, Orchis albanica Goelz et Reinhard, Orchis x paparisti Goelz et Reinhard). The phytosociological analysis has highlighted 16 associations, which belong to 4 classes, 5 orders and 6 alliances.
