Helleno-Balkanic andropogonid grass steppes
Meso-, thermo- and sub-Mediterranean steppes of Greece and the southern Balkan peninsula, north to Albania and the North Macedonia, constituted by cespitose andropogonid grasses such as Dichanthium ischaemum, Hyparrhenia hirta, Andropogon distachyos, or Chrysopogon gryllus. They are continued in Bulgaria by the steppic grasslands of unit R1B24, and in the western Balkan peninsula by tall-grass steppic grasslands of units R1K1, R1K2 and R1K3, in particular, of unit R1K24. They are represented farther north in the southern Alpine region by grasslands of unit R1A37.
