Vegetation of the Czech Republic
Atriplicetum roseae Forstner in Mucina et al. 1993
This vegetation type is formed of monodominant stands of Atriplex rosea, a critically endangered species of the Czech flora. It is found on disturbed, usually base-rich soils on roadsides, rubble of demolished buildings, mine tailings and at the bases of old village walls. In the past three decades this community has been observed on a few sites in central, northern and western Bohemia. It was more common in the mid-20th century but it was replaced by other Atriplex species on most of its sites.
