Interior Iberian salt pan meadows

English name: Interior Iberian salt pan meadows

Description (English)

Salt meadows peculiar to the lowest, wettest parts of interior Iberian depressions, dominated by Puccinellia fasciculata or Aeluropus littoralis in the very lowest areas, or, slightly higher, by Juncus gerardi. The higher, drier ground that surrounds them is occupied either by other salt meadow communities that are less differentiated from the coastal communities (units A2.522 and A2.532) or by salt scrubs (unit F6.83).
