Abstract (in english)
   Several volcanoclastic beds in coal-bearing strata of the Late Palaeozoic continental basins in the Czech Republic contain in situ buried peat-forming plant ecosystems the study of which provides a unique insight into their structural pattern and species composition. Middle Pennsylvanian peat-forming plant assemblages at 14 localities in basins of central and western Bohemia and from the Intra-Sudetic Basin (NE Bohemia) were characterised based on collections of plants preserved in five successive tuff beds. Analysis of plant remains preserved in these beds reveals the co-existence of several ecologically controlled plant assemblages ranging from structurally simple, low-diversity to high-diversity phytocoenoses, with complex structural patterns and synecological relationships.
