SHORT SURVEY OF ARRHENATH ERETALIA GRASLAND IN GERMANY

H. DIERSCHKE

Abstract


Based on a comprehensive synoptic table, a short syntaxonomical survey of mesic grassland of Germany is presented, concentrated on associations and alliances. Four alliances have been distinguished: Arrhenatherion elatioris, Cynosurion cristati, Poion alpinae, and Polygono-Trisetion (with two suballiances). The species-poor meadows, developed under very intensive farming, are classified as a fragmentary community within the class Molinio-Arrhenatheretea.
