We shall, in this last chapter, treat the floristic-sociological or Braun-Blanquet approach to classification and interpretation of communities. 
Delimitation and Ranking of Floristic-Sociological Units on the Basis of Relevé Similarity
The present information deals with the possibility of using coefficients of releve similarity for the delimitation of units in floristic-sociological synsystematics in the sense as used by the
Ecological gradients, subdivisions and terminology of north‐west European mires
1 The historical development of mire ecology and terminology is reviewed in relation to evolving concepts and perceptions, and the diverse schools and traditions of vegetation and habitat description
Relations between community theory and community analysis in vegetation science: some historical perspectives
Relations between community theory and community analysis are elucidated from a historical viewpoint. Four groups of relevant aspects are distinguished. This paper concentrates on aspects of spatial
Syntaxa according tо the Braun-Blanquet approach in Bulgaria
The application of the Braun-Blanquet approach for plant classification in Bulgaria is presented in the article. According to the literary review and the existing phytosociological data, 39 classes,
Reflections on the phytosociological approach and the epistemological basis of vegetation science
TLDR
It is tried to identify the logical basis of the phytosociological method and the starting point can be summarized with the axiom ‘vegetation is organized in communities’.
The Braun-Blanquet approach in perspective
The 30th volume of Vegetatio has to some extent been devoted to J. Braun-Blanquet and this contribution will conclude our scientific celebration of Braun-Blanquet's 90th birthday. In addition to
NEW SYNTAXONS OF THE CITY OF NALCHIK (КABARDINO-BALKARIA)
TLDR
The results of the ecological and floristic classification of some mderal communities of the city of Nalchik are presented and Communities of associations, including those under the name Erigeronto­ Lactucetum serriolae Lohmeyer in Oberdorfer 1957, are noted.
The vegetation ecology of municipal Durban, Natal. Floristic classification

TLDR
The author’s purpose is to consider the Braun-Blanquet system of vegetation classification, which is a system claiming to be based on floristical composition, and to analyse how far, in reality, structural criteria are involved in it.
