Vegetation of the Czech Republic

Alliance TCA
Puccinellion limosae Soó 1933

This alliance includes species-poor, saline grasslands dominated by short grasses of the genus Puccinellia, occurring on drier soils than the other vegetation types of saline habitats. It is distributed in dry lowlands of south-eastern-central and south-eastern Europe, where it is often found in contact with steppe vegetation. In southern Moravia it reaches its north-western distribution limits.
