Middle European Brachypodium semidry grasslands
Brachypodium pinnatum ssp. pinnatum or Brachypodium pinnatum ssp. rupestre facies of unit R1A32. Geographical subdivisions are given by level 6 units R1A321 - R1A322 . Brachypodium-dominated facies may form in all the regional types of grasslands inventoried in unit R1A32 as a result of nitrification or of dominance of grazing over mowing. Such processes are accompanied by a drastic reduction in species diversity. South western grasslands of sub units H to K of R1A32 and of R1A33 are, however, generally rich in Brachypodium even in the apparent absence of degradation processes.
