Abstract: The need to know more about diversity and species distribution patterns of the cerrado biome has increased, due to its accelerated destruction. Hence, a floristic and phytosociological inventory was conducted in a cerrado (stricto sensu) area, located in the Parque Estadual da Serra de Caldas Novas, state of Goiás, Brazil, comparing the quantitative and qualitative results with those from other 15 areas. Fifty plots of 20×20m (2ha) were established and all trees with CSH30 >15cm were included in the study. A total of 70 species, 51 genera and 31 families were found at the site. Fabaceae was the richest family (with 13 species), followed by Vochysiaceae (7). The highest importance values were for Tabebuia aurea Benth. &Hook, Kielmeyera coriacea Mart. &Zucc and Qualea parviflora Mart. The floristic comparative analysis showed that geographic distance was the most important parameter, followed by other environmental factors. The quantitative structural patterns reflect variations in more reduced scale, probably under strong influence of environmental variations.
