Abstract


This study is devoted to Nador massif located in the steppe environment of Tiaret region in the west of Algeria. This massif is characterized by a diversity of flora composed of 121 taxa belonging to 38 families and 98 genera. Biological spectrum indicates a predominance of therophytes (38%) and chamaephytes (19%), geophytes (14%). The most important families are Poaceae and Asteraceae. Mediterranean element is relatively dominant (55%) according to chorologic plane. Shannon-Weaver e diversity index is relatively high (4.55) indicating a richly diverse site. Disturbance index (63.6%) reflects highly significant degree of massif vegetation disturbance, which also reflects a more open environment. To better understand the structure of vegetation using the classification is imperative
