Some observations on relationship between Phytosociology and Geopedology. Many are the questions about the relationships between soil and vegetation which geobotanists and pedologists try to answer to, i.e. which is the extent of the correlation between the two systems and what pedological variables are the most meaningful to help us to describe the vegetation types? Starting from concrete data based on Soil Taxonomy, and on the Braun-Blanquet approach, as far as vegetation is concerned, this paper proposes some observations on the interrelation soil-vegetation and tries to establish the significance of some edaphic parameters towards plant communities.
