Vegetation of the Czech Republic

Alliance MCD
Phalaridion arundinaceae Kopecký 1961

This alliance includes reed and tall-sedge vegetation along middle river courses in colline and submontane areas, frequently dominated by Phalaris arundinacea, less frequently Carex buekii and Calamagrostis pseudophragmites. It occurs on gravelly, sandy or loamy-sandy alluvial sediments on river banks or on islets in river channels. It is frequently disturbed by brief flooding.
