ABSTRACT
Çiçavica mountain massif presents an interesting region within the flora and vegetation of the Republic of Kosovo. Is Located almost in the central part of Kosovo, and on the western edge of the Valley of Kosovo as a natural border between the Valley of Kosovo and Drenica. Southwestern part of Çiçavica has an area of 12.26 km2, while the altitude ranges from 540 m (Grabovc i Epërm) to 1091 m (the highest peak of the massif). Geological base of the Paleozoic formations, diverse pedology and middle continental climate are important factors for floristic composition of the explored forest territory. Although during the past two decades in these forests was evident negative actions of anthropogenic factors, they are in a relatively good condition and especially during the last years are observed good positive actions in the management and sustainable use of them. Analyzed in the floristic aspect, explored terrain is represented by all groups of vascular plants dominated by the Magnoliophyta. From the phytocoenological aspect, the vertical extension of Çiçavica mountain massif (Southwestern part), from the foot to the top of the mountain, we concluded this stretch of forest vegetation represent deciduous forests of oak (Quercus) and beech (Fagus) which belong to class Querco- Fagetea respectively of orders: Quercetalia pubescentis and Fagetalia sylvaticae.

Keywords: Flora, Vegetation, Forests, Kosovo, Anthropogenic factor.
