Oncolitic deposits (F1) of the facies subassociation A1 are interpreted as deposited in subtidal oncoid shoals which migrated in a carbonate platform and under normal marine salinity waters, due to their fossil
Over the past 20 years, shifting interest in the computer science major has spurred sponsorship of a number of studies by major universities (e.g., Carnegie Mellon University, University of Virginia, The Ohio State University) and professional associations (e.g., Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and ACM's Women's subassociation).
Four new associations and one subassociation, grouped in the new alliance Juncion lesueurii, arise from the analysis of the syntaxonomical interpretation.
SALGE also sponsors an informal subassociation network for persons new to the government finance profession.
The name of association 5 is a clear case of nomen superfluum: Schwaar (1976) studied a community in Tierra de Fuego which he called Pernettyo-Sphagnetum magellanici, supported by 14 releves whose floristic content in its typical subassociation barely exceeded six species; however, this composition is identical to the one previously studied by Roivainen (1954) and which Oberdorfer (1960) proposed to call Polytricho alpestris-Sphagnetum.
The first, releves 1-5, contents the association type, but they did not mention any subassociation name, nor reference to the typical subassociation.
Given that forest types within clusters A1a and A1b share common species with similar ecology and, especially, migration histories during the late glacial and post-glacial periods (Genova & al., 2009; Lopez-Saez & al., 2013, 2014; Abel-Schaad & al., 2014), all previously mentioned facts allow us to propose a new pinewood subassociation: Echinosparto barnadesii-Pinetum ibericae Sanchez-Mata, Gavilan & Lopez-Saez in Lopez-Saez & al.
1-8; subassociation of Stenhamarella turgida = Stenhammarelletum turgidae sensu Asta et Roux 1977) The group of releves named 'subassociation of Lecidea confluescens' in 1973 was reclassified as the Lecideetum confluescentis and classified in the Aspicilietea candidae by ASTA & ROUX (1977).
This subassociation is an early stage of Late successional community; where Acacia macracantha and Senna atomaria still play an important role in the canopy layer; and the thickness of Sideroxylon salicifolium and Eugenia axillaris is still very low.
The names of subsigmeta should be formed by the name of the corresponding sigmetum, followed by the stem of the generic name of the plant that designates the subassociation, in lower-case, plus the suffix "subsigmetum" after the connecting vowel, followed by the epithet of the species designating the subassociation, in the genitive.
