Riverine Fraxinus - Alnus woodland, wet at high but not at low water

English name: Riverine ash - alder woodland, wet at high but not at low water

Description (English)

Riparian forests of Fraxinus excelsior and Alnus glutinosa, sometimes Alnus incana, of middle European and northern Iberian lowland or hill watercourses, on soils periodically inundated by the annual rise of the river level, but otherwise well-drained and aerated during low-water; they differ from riparian alder woods within units G1.41 and G1.52 by the strong representation in the dominated layers of forest species not able to grow in permanently waterlogged soils.
