vegetation mapping, insolation, cluster analysis, Mt. Devínska Kobyla
The existence of a close relationship between the vegetation and local climate has been known for a long time and is one of the most significant relationships in the landscape. Insolation affects all kinds of other topoclimatic characteristics (air temperature, soil temperature, relative air humidity, etc.), which are essential for the development of vegetation associations. In this paper we focused on spatial differentiation of the vegetation, we have made a digital terrain model and evaluated insolation. We studied the tightness of relationship between differentiation of the vegetation cover and insolation. The study area (1,8×1,2 km) is situated in the northerly sections in the National Nature Reserve Devínska Kobyla. It forms a belt-shaped part of the Devínska Kobyla subsection, the most southern section of the Malé Karpaty (Mts.), called the Devínske Karpaty (Mts.). The area is located between the Danube, and Morava Rivers, where the Carpathian Mountains meet with the Pannonian Basin. Its unique geographical position resulted in extraordinary physical-geographical conditions.
