Abstract
A phytosociological analysis was conducted in a fragment of a semideciduous submontane forest in Vicosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. All trees with a minimum trunk circumference of 0.15 m and a 1.30 m diameter from the ground were sampled which comprise 121 species belonging to 89 genera and 39 families. The families most represented were Leguminosae (16), Rubiaceae (6) and Euphorbiaceae (5) and Myrtaceae (5). The families with the a rich number of species were Leguminosae (20), Lauraceae (10), Rubiaceae (9) and Flacourtiaceae (8). Ocotea and Casearia were the most prominent genera in the area with 7 and 5 species, respectively.
