Resumo: The present thesis explores the applicability of geobotanical sciences to landscape planning. The four main objectives and the subsequent most relevant results are: i) To increase knowledge about the vegetation landscape of the Paiva River basin (and of the adjacent smaller river basins): 41 syntaxa were found in the region, 12 of which are original (17 climactic forests, 5 of which original); ii) To discuss phytosociological methodology and related applications: a critic synthesis of the fundamental phytosociological concepts is presented, as well as a direct application of the same concepts to the National Ecologic Reserve decree-law; iii) To produce vegetation maps of the study area, aiming to support an improved landscape planning of the region: maps of the vegetation series and geoseries of the study area are presented, based on field data and on the bioclimatic maps produced for this purpose; iv) To evaluate the contribution of Integrated Phytosociology to landscape management and planning, with regard to the production of significant information, in particular when supported by vegetation modelling techniques in order to produce cartography: it is proposed a modelling exercise of the mesophilous forests distribution, using environmental envelope models. The major conclusion is that Geobotany is an indispensable instrument to substantiate and to structure any intervention in the landscape, especially in rural areas: specific examples encountered in the region are given.
