ABSTRACT

The objective of this study is to inventory the flora of the Ouled Bechih forest (Algeria) with a quantitative and qualitative analysis through significant parameters. This study allowed the identification of 27 species belonging to 26 genera and 17 families. The results show an important diversity of the regional flora which is essentially dominated by the Asteraceae, Fabaceae, Fagaceae and Rosaceae. Hemicryptophytes and geophytes dominate the biological spectrum of the flora of this forest, which is morphologically characterised by the dominance of perennial herbs. The analysis of the chorological types shows the predominance of the Mediterranean element.
