These studies accumulated valuable phytosociological data on almost all forest vegetation types, such as sclerophyllous evergreen forests, deciduous broadleaved forests, coniferous forests, and riparian forests (Guinochet, 1980; Zeraia, 1981; Abdessemed, 1981; Dahmani, 1984, 1997; Bensettiti, 1985, 1995; Toubal, 1986; Aime et al, 1986; Khelifi, 1987, 2008; Sadki, 1988; Hadjadj-Aoul, 1988, 1995; Wojterski, 1988; Quezel & Barbero, 1989; Gehu et al.

Percentage of individuals by botanical family, genera and species; the number of individuals (N); the analysed phytosociological parameters; and the successional categories found in the fragment of a Seasonal Semideciduous Forest under the influence of selective logging, Tapurah, Mato Grosso State, 2014.
Phytosociological studies can describe and evaluate natural environments and agro-systems based on plant community characteristics.
For this analysis we will focus on the environmental determination of the floristic diversity and syntaxonomique analysis which will be devoted to the description of the phytosociological units of the riverine vegetation.
In this context, the present study aimed to evaluate the floristic composition and phytosociological structure of these preserved areas in the Andreas Stream Hydrographic Basin, RS, Brazil, from August 2013 to June 2014, established through the Payment for Environmental Services (PES).
There, it presents as a phytosociological representative of a remnant forest called Mata do Araldo; the distribution's importance value index (IVI) was found to be the highest of those in two separate surveys, which were performed approximately 14 years apart (Souza, 1998; Slusarski, 2009).
Each pan on NGR and their associated habitat types is depicted using a phytosociological table (Tables 1, 6 and 9).

In particular, we used three different digital maps: 1) the Corine Land Cover (CLC; European Environment Agency 2007), 2) the forestry and other land-use categories map of the Piedmont Region (FMP) and 3) the phytosociological map of the Veglia-Devero Natural Park (PSM).
