Abstract

The botanico-geographical character of the Caucasian and especially specific evergreen broad-leaved woody species of the Colchic mesophyllous floristic complexes and their florogenetic connections are considered. The complexes are referred to as “Colchian mesophyllous dendroflora“ in the Caucasian botanical literature. Phytocoenologically they are called “Colchian subprostrate evergreen underwood“.
