Vegetation of the Czech Republic is a four-volume monograph which systematically summarizes the diversity of vegetation types on the territory of the Czech Republic. Czech vegetation is divided into 39 phytosociological classes, which are further divided into 138 alliances and 496 associations. Each of these vegetation units is characterized by a detailed description of its floristic composition, ecology, dynamics, distribution and economic or conservation value, including distribution maps and synoptic tables of species composition. Associations were delimited by formal definitions and tested using a set of approximately 100 000 vegetation plots contained in the Czech National Phytosociological Database. National vegetation classification is accompanied by a computer expert system for identification of associations. The monograph was elaborated by a team of botanists from the Department of Botany and Zoology, Masaryk University in cooperation with experts from the Institute of Botany, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and other institutions
