All the relevés with Taxus baccata from the northwest phytosociological Spanish database were selected, using the database Iberian and Macaronesian Vegetation Information System (SIVIM). Eight environmental variables associated with them were studied in order to establish the European yew habitat preferences. Multivariate analyses were carried out: the dissimilarity analysis between species couples, Metric MDS analysis (PCoA) and clustering analysis (UPGMA). The results allow to know and group the species that frequently occur with the European yew and to establish a hierarchy of phytosociological associations where this relictic species lives.
