Typology of Pinus sylvestris L. forests in Spain
AbstractThe wide range of ecological factors such as climate, soils, topography, geographical position that can be found in the Iberian peninsula has produced a high diversity of Pinus sylvestris L. communities. In this paper the Scots pine communities in Spain have been reviewed and the different geobotanical interpretations made by Spanish botanists have been analysed. There is no unanimity on how to classify these forests, and some of them have not been included in geobotanical or phytosociological classification because they have been considered like reforestations in climax areas of the other species.
