Dry lowland and colline heathlands

new search

The alliance Euphorbio-Callunion typifies vegetation of dry heathlands dominated by Calluna vulgaris occurring on acidic and nutrient-poor soils in lowland and colline landscapes characterized by low rainfall. Often they are in contact with dry grasslands and contain some steppe species. Drought-adapted mosses and lichens are common in the stands. The range of this alliance includes drier areas in lowlands of eastern Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia.
