R34 Submediterranean moist meadow

new search

Moist meadows of sandy to clayey, mesotrophic to eutrophic soils on riverside terraces and gentle slopes, mainly in the lowland to submontane belts of South-Eastern Europe, extending westwards to central Italy. Winter and spring flooding is common, but later in the season the ground may dry up and become locally saline. The species composition reflects regional differences in temperature and rainfall, but patterns of mowing and grazing can also affect the species composition.
