ABSTRACT

Thermophillous oak forests include considerable area of forest within Kosovo. Lie on altitude 300-1200 m. In the mountainous massifs where the greatest impact continental
climate, these forests developed mainly in southern and southwestern expositions. These forests except the Central European plant species are rich with Mediterranean and
Submediterranean species. These forests belong to the class Querco-Fagetea, to the ordo Quercetalia pubescentis and to the alliances: Ostryo-Carpinion orientalis, Quercion frainetto and Quercion petraea-cerris. Within the thermophillous oak forests
in Kosovo fall phytocenosis: Quercetum trojanae dukagjini, Quercetum frainetto cerris scardicum, Quercetum montanum, Ostryo-Quercetum cerris, Quercetum pubescentis cerris and Lembotropo-Quercetum cerris. In these forests at different stages acted
anthropogenic factor. This move in woods as potential natural vegetation is especially expressed in phytocenosis: Quercetum trojanae dukagjini, Quercetum pubescentis cerris and Quercetum farnetto cerris scardicum.

Keywords: Kosovo, Thermophilous oak forests, Anthropogenic factor.
