Phytosociological attribution of the shrubby vegetation of a Northern Apennines sector. A study on shrubby vegetation, constituted by vegetation mantles and shrub formations, developing in the Regional Natural Park of the Sasso Simone and Simoncello territory, situated in the Northern Apennines, in the low-montane bioclimatic belt, is presented. Three associations, belonging to the two alliances Cytision sessilifoliae and Berberidion vulgaris are ideniified. To the first alliance belongs the Spartio juncei-Cytisetum sessilifolii association diffused, with different variants, on the calcareous formations, while to the second one belong the new Roso arvensis-Prunetum spinosae and Lonicero xylostei-Salicetum apenninae associations, of clay formations.
