pop05 | This alliance, and perhaps also its superior order, would be better placed in the Carpino-Fagetea. In Southern Europe, there are considerable differences between zonal and riparian forests but this contrast becomes less obvious in Central and Northern Europe. The Alnion incanae forests are most similar to the Tilio-Acerion and the Melico-Tilion platyphylli forests that are classified within the Carpino-Fagetea. (MC, JPT) Rivas-Martínez et al. (2011: 342) pursued a mediterraneo-centric view and classified this alliance within the Populetalia. (L. Mucina).
