Abstract

The aim of this paper is to establish the relationships between the high-mountain vegetation and the landforms and geomorphological processes modelling the slopes of the Tatra Mountains, and to test the proposition that these relationships are only fully manifested at the meso-scale (within relief units of appropriately large area). These propositions were tested by comparing overlays of digital maps of vegetation and geomorphology. A characteristic combination of plant communities was determined for each of the 5 types of morphodynamic unit identified
