The alliance Nardion strictae typifies grasslands dominated by Nardus stricta occurring in higher mountain ranges. Some stands are natural grasslands occurring around the timberline, while others are found at deforested sites below the timberline. They contain some species of alpine grasslands and subalpine tall-forb vegetation. The distribution range of this alliance includes various mountain ranges of western and Central Europe.
