The two species groups distinguished using larger scale data set reflect community-level distribution patterns. The first is characteristic of those parts of the area where herbs indicate the driest and most acidic habitat (eg Viscaria vulgaris, Carex digitata, Campanula persicifolia, Hieracium lachenalii, Luzula albida, Trifolium medium, Veronica officinalis). The common characteristics of species belonging to the second group is their absence from these parts. The acidophilous species described above showed similar interspecific relationships when the smaller scale data set was analysed. Using these data, a more detailed description of interspecific relationships was given for the species that belonged to the second species group. Most importantly positive links between some Fagetalia species Dentaria bulbifera, Lathyrus vernus, Asperula odorata and some disturbance tolerating weeds (Geranium robertianum, Chaerophyllum temulum, Galium aparine, Urtica dioica, Campanula rapunculoides) were shown. -from Author
