In the papers are analyzed the releves of phytocoenoses of Quercus robur and Quercus cerris from the Middle Danubian plane. Two new associations are differentiated: mesophitic, Scutellario altissimae-Quercetum roboris, on lowland platforms with aluvial soils and xerotermic, Cotyno coggygriae-Quercetum cerris, on dry hills over chernozem soils. Hereby are considered their relationships with high syntaxa and their analogy with similar associations described in Serbia and in Romania.
