Phytosociological characteristics of chasmophitic communities on subalpine serpentine cliff s of Kopaonik Mountain were analyzed according to Braun-Blanquet methodology. In order to detect purely floristic differentiation of analyzed communities we applied ordinary Correspondence Analysis (CA). Relationship between vegetation and environment was assessed using the Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA), while classification of sites was performed using UPGMA method and chord distance. All analyses were performed using the latest version of the 'FLORA' package. According to floristic and ecological characteristics, analyzed chasmophitic communities on serpentine cliff s of Kopaonik Mountain is divided in three new associations: Edraiantho jugoslavici- Festucetum pancicianae ass. nova, Silenetum serbicae ass. nova and Musco-Jovibarbetum kopaonikense ass. nova. .
