Salt steppe of the Pannonian and Pontic regions, characteristic of solonetz soils, saturated, even shallow flooded, by soluble carbonates in spring, then drying in summer with surface cracking. According to variations in salinity, slope and erosion by spring floods, the vegetation is a complex mosaic of grasslands and more halophytic herb communities, rich in endemic species and plant communities. Traditionally part of the pastoral landscape of older breeds of cattle.
