Glycerietum notatae

Photo on

This vegetation type is dominated by Glyceria notata, usually accompanied by some other grasses. It occurs on sandy sediment accumulations along small streams, disturbed springs in meadows, in puddles along dirt roads in forests or open landscape, and on exposed fishpond bottoms. It is most frequent in places flooded by up to 8 cm deep running water. In the Czech Republic this vegetation type occurs mainly in areas with base-rich bedrock.
