Abstract: 
In this study, vegetation of the Bisotun Protected Area with an area of ca. 50, 000 hectares in west of Iran, Kermanshah province, was studied. Samples of vegetation were collected using the Braun-Blanquet method where 66 ré lé ves were taken from different habitats. To express the phytosociological status of the site, data were analyzed by employing Analyse Factorielle des Correspondence (AFC) and Classification Ascendante Hié rarchique (CAH) methods using Anaphyto software. The results of phytosociological data analysis showed that there were 10 associations, three subassociations and two communities in the area as follows: Lonicero nummulariifoliae-Aceretum cinerascentis (pistacietosum khinjuki, vicietosum variabilis, amygdaletosum orientalis), Trigonosciadio tuberosi-Feruletum haussknechtii, Prangetum pabulariae, Ferulago phialocarpae-Cruciatetum persicae, Pimpinello deverroidi-Astragaletum compacti, Astragaletum geminani, Quercetum persicae, Trifolietum scabro-pilularae, Trifolietum scabro-stdellati, Trifolio scabri-Avenetum fatuae, Trifolio scabri-Avenetum ludovicianae, Crataegetum aroniae, Amygdaletum arabicae, Bupleurum kurdicum community and Triticum boeoticum– Festuca ovina community. The establishment of the syntaxa is affected by altitude, exposure, slopes, and edaphic factors.
