Water-fringing reedbeds and tall helophytes other than canes

English name: Water-fringing reedbeds and tall helophytes other than canes

Description (English)

Water-fringing stands of tall vegetation by lakes (including brackish lakes), rivers and brooks, usually species-poor and often dominated by one species. Includes stands of Carex spp., Cladium mariscus, Equisetum fluviatile, Glyceria maxima, Hippuris vulgaris, Phragmites australis, Sagittaria sagittifolia, Schoenoplectus spp., Sparganium spp. and Typha spp. Excludes terrestrialized reed and sedge beds which are not at the water's edge (D5.1, D5.2).
