E. Z. Baisheva, A. I. Solomeshch, I. N. Grigoryev



As a result of classification of spring and brook vegetation in the Southern Urals, based upon 150 releves, 6 associations and 6 variants are totally distingui­shed, and one new association is described. The asso­ciations Cardamino amarae—Chrysosplenietum alternifolii Maas 1959 and Fontinali antipyreticae—Cardaminetum amarae ass. nov. hoc loco belong to the class Montio-Cardaminetea Br.-Bl. et R. Tx. 1943, whereas the class Platyhypnidio-Fontinalietea Phi­lippi 1956 comprises the associations Fontinalietum antipyreticae Kaiser 1926, Brachythecio rivularis—Hygrohypnetum luridi Philippi 1965, Cratoneuretum filicini Poelt 1954 and Scapanietum undulatae Schwi­ckerath 1944. The relations of listed associations to the European syntaxa are discussed.
