Artemisia saline puszta

English name: Artemisia saline puszta

Description (English)

Saline steppe communities of the Pannonic plain, of strong middle Asian affinities, developed on more low-lying surfaces than those of unit E6.2111, often on the periphery of rills, usually inundated in early spring, dominated by sward-forming Festuca pseudovina with a variable admixture of emergent Artemisia, often physiognomically dominant, and patchy mass-occurrences of Limonium. Characteristic species include Artemisia santonicum ssp. santonicum, Artemisia maritima ssp. maritima, Festuca pseudovina, Limonium gmelinii, Trifolium retusum (Trifolium parviflorum), Sedum caespitosum, Taraxacum bessarabicum and the endemic Plantago schwarzenbergiana.
