R19 Dry steppic submediterranean pasture of the Amphi-Adriatic region

new search

Dry steppic pasture typical of sharply-draining, base-rich soils developed over valley sides, dolines and sink-holes around the Adriatic seaboards where the submediterranean climate is characterised by late autumn and spring rains and summer drought. Dominated by often rich mixtures of graminoids, forbs and mat-formers, the habitat is dependent on extensive grazing and now often survives patchily among mosaics of scrub and forest.
