Rare and threatened plant communities of the Ravenna province sites of the Park of the Po Delta (Emilia-Romagna Region). We present here an outline of the most threatened plant communities of the coastal territory of the Ravenna province, for the most part included in the Regional Park of the Po Delta (Emilia-Romagna Region). It concerns a complex landscape related to the particular geographical situation, instability, changes in the territory and human activities. This varied territory includes sand dunes, saltmarsh ponds, freshwater ponds, grey dunes and related dune slacks. The vegetation types we consider particularly rare or in critical condition are marked with an asterisk in the final syntaxonomical scheme.
