This investigation was carried out between 1996 and 2001 in order to research the vegetation of Nemrut Mountain, one of the most important national historical park of Anatolia, on the south-east Taurus (Adıyaman-Turkey). Vegetation studies have been carried out according to the Braun-Blanquet's method. In this study we determined 7 plant associations, 3 sub associations, and 1 plant community, all of which are syntaxa new to science, in 4 different vegetation types. Associations and its higher units are as follows: Quercetea ilicis Br.-Bl. 1947 Qercetalia ilicis Br.-Bl. 1947 Quercion calliprini Zohary 1962 1.
