The epiphytic Anomodontetum attenuati association have been first identified from beech forests (Fagus orientalis) in Europe (Romania). With this study, the same association is newly reported for Turkey from hornbeam (Carpinus orientalis) forests in Amanos (Nur) Mountains. In addition to the syntaxonomic, floristic and ecological descriptions of this association, a life form and life strategy analysis has been carried out. Finally, phytosociolological analysis show clearly that the assocation is mainly composed of perennial styers with a high asexual reproductive effort, with pleurocarp dominance, the more or less stable and humid site conditions.
