Vegetation of the Czech Republic

Alliance MAC
Verbenion supinae Slavnić 1951

This alliance includes low-growing vegetation of summer or winter annual, or short-lived perenial species, which are weak competitors. It occurs in warm areas, where succession of tall-growing competitors is fast, which means that this vegetation type is most often found in frequently disturbed habitats, such as wet places in arable fields and pastures, sand or loam pits, bottoms of summer-dried fishponds, desiccating oxbows and river banks. Soils are rich in calcium, and on some sites slightly saline. This alliance occurs in warm parts of Europe, being most diverse in the Pannonian region.
