Rupicolous pannonic grasslands (Stipo-Festucetalia pallentis)

Description (English)

Open, pioneer rock sward associations occurring on steep, dry xeric slopes in medium altitude mountains of the Pannonic basin and adjacent regions at 150-900 m a.sl. The base rock is limestone, dolomite or calcareous volcanic rock (basalt, andesite, gabbro) and the soils are shallow rendzinas.
Sub types:
Pal. 34.351 - Calci-orophile pale fescue grasslands (Diantho lumnitzeri-Seslerion albicantis, Seslerion rigidae)
Central European calcicolous subcontinental rock-ledge grasslands of orogenous affinities, montane or submontane with a strong representation of species characteristic of higher-altitude communities, often occupying stations with a comparatively cool microclimate.
Pal. 34.3522 - Circum-Pannonic calcicline pale fescue grasslands (Bromo pannonici-Festucion pallentis)
Species-rich xero-thermophile subcontinental rock-ledge grasslands of the western and southern periphery of the Carpathian arc, developed on rendzinas over limestones or dolomite on south-facing steep slopes with extreme conditions of insolation, temperature variation and evaporation.
Pal. 34.353 - Acidocline pale fescue grasslands (Asplenio septentrionalis-Festucion pallentis, Alysso saxatilis-Festucion pallentis)
Central European subcontinental xero-thermophile grasslands of siliceous collinear and montane rock ledges.

Conservation status

EU conservation status

Conservation status assesses every six years and for each biogeographical region the condition of habitats and species compared to the favourable status as described in the Habitats Directive. The map shows the 2007-2012 assessments as reported by EU Member State. Assessments are further detailed in the summary document available behind the link below.

Favourable: A habitat is in a situation where it is prospering and with good prospects to do so in the future as well
Unfavourable-Inadequate: A habitat is in a situation where a change in management or policy is required to return the habitat to favourable status but there is no danger of disappearance in the foreseeable future
Unfavourable-Bad: A habitat is in serious danger of disappearing (at least regionally)
Unknown: The information available for the habitat type is scarce and does not allow a proper assessment of its conservation status
