Abstract

An account of the description and classification of the vegetation of Greenland is presented. Four periods are recognized: the Physiognomic period, the Extension period, the Floristics-Dominance period, and the Syntaxonomic period. The approaches used in vegetation classification pertaining to Greenland are discussed. A first survey is presented of the higher syntaxa known from suboceanic-oceanic, subarctic-low arctic Greenland. 14 classes are dealt with. The syntaxa are floristically defined and their concept is discussed. The Juncetalia trifidi, Caricetea curvulae, are described for the first time.
