Abstract: S. (2019) Formalized classification of semi-dry grasslands in central and eastern Europe.-Preslia 91: 25-49 European semi-dry grasslands are among the most species-rich vegetation types in the northern hemisphere and form an important part of the habitat mosaics in the forest-steppe zone. However, there is no comprehensive evaluation of the variation in their composition and the phytosociological classification of these grasslands. For the syntaxonomic revision, we used a dataset of 34,173 vegetation plot reco… Show more

“…The most valuable and species-richest of the semi-dry grasslands belong to the most mesic community of the class Festuco-Brometea, the Brachypodio pinnati-Molinietum arundinaceae association. According to the synthesis of Willner et al (2019), this plant community is associated with mesic meadow steppes of the forest-steppe zone in central Europe, classified within the Cirsio-Brachypodion pinnati alliance. They are characterized by the presence of steppe and thermophilous species in combination with species of meadows on mesic and intermittently wet soils, open forests or forest fringes (Chytrý & Novák 2007, Škodová & Ujházy 2014.…”

“…This enabled us to prepare a more precise expert system, which better reflects the empirical fact that species may have different weights for the identification of an association. An alternative approach would be to compare the total cover values or the total number of species of particular species groups (Willner 2011, Tichý et al 2019, Willner et al 2019, which is especially useful for classifying species-rich vegetation with several dominant species, such as grasslands.…”

“…Xeric sand calcareous grasslands (also called dry grasslands) are semi-natural plant communities that have originated as a result of extensive grazing of grasslands on permeable, relatively fertile and sandy soils, thus occur in different landscape types [84]. Plant cover is loose and in addition to grass species contains numerous herbaceous plants, as well as moss-lichen layer typical for well-developed sandy dry grassland communities [5,85]. Plant communities of dry grasslands in Poland show great diversity and dynamics resulting from soil and geographical conditions that affect the species composition and sward density.…”
