S91 Temperate riparian scrub

new search

Scrub of Salix spp. and Myricaria germanica developed on the mineral sediments of banks, shoals and gravel bars of lowland to montane streams through the temperate zone, re-establishing after seasonal flooding or succeeding to riparian and gallery forest where the sediments stabilise.
Remark: Salix acutifolia scrub in Ukraine, occurring not only in floodplains, needs to be considered as potential new habitat.
