Abstract

In the summers of 1996 and 1997, the phytosociological investigations of phytocoenoses of Phragmitetum communis were carried out. Samples of the water and the substrate were also analyzed. Phytosociological characteristic was presented, and ranges of physical and chemical properties of habitats were found. It was also found that phytocoenoses of the investigated association have an indicative value in relation to definite properties of the water and the substrate, and could be indicators of the habitat conditions. Comparison of habitat requirements of phytocoenoses investigated in the Wielkopolska region (the Wielkopolski National Park, Western Poland) to those investigated in north-eastern region of Poland (Kłosowski, 1992) pointed out the indicative value to be partly the same and partly different in different regions.
