Dry perennial anthropogenic herbaceous vegetation

Description (English)

Stands dominated by perennial herbaceous plants, frequently ruderals, developing on dry abandoned urban or agricultural land, on land that has been reclaimed, on transport networks, or on land used for waste disposal. These stands often replace annual anthropogenic herbaceous vegetation in the course of secondary succession.

Indicator species

Diagnostic species
Constant species
Dominant species
Flowering Plants Artemisia vulgaris

Diagnostic species occur concentrated in the habitat in question, but are absent or rare in other habitats. They are good positive indicators of the habitat, but they do not need to occur in every location of the habitat.
