This study is based on data taken from literature and on our own research conducted in Pieniny National Park. The sycamore maple is one of the main tree species in Phyllitido-Aceretum, but very seldom the most abundant one. Spatial distribution of trees, ascertained using the Ripley's K function, follows the random pattern. Negative spatial relationship between tree species at local spatial scales probably reflects site patchiness. The size structure of tree stands in Phyllitido-Aceretum is similar to that of beech forests, but the stand density is two times lower. Slope instability can be a plausible explanation of this phenomenon.
