Vegetation of the Czech Republic

Alliance XDA
Senecionion fluviatilis Tüxen ex Moor 1958

This alliance includes natural vegetation types of annual and perennial, nutrient- and moisture-demanding herbaceous plants. The stands are dense, involving several herbaceous lianas and herbs producing large amounts of biomass. Natural habitats are fringes of floodplain forests and scrub or banks of rivers and oxbows. However, this vegetation also develops in secondary habitats such as abandoned meadows and forest clearings in the floodplains.
