R1G Iberian oromediterranean siliceous dry grassland

new search

Grassland of base-poor soils over siliceous bedrock on the slopes and crests of high mountains in the Iberian Peninsula with a short growing season and harsh winters with strong winds which blow the ground free of snow and leave the surface subject to deep cold and the development of freeze-thaw features. The vegetation cover, moderately open to closed, is dominated by prostrate or dwarf grasses and forbs and includes many endemics.
