English name: Pannonic saline meadows

Description (English)

Salt-meadow communities of medium tall often tussock-forming grasses, developed on summer-dry carbonate-poor clay soils (Beckmannion communities) or on carbonate-rich or sandy soils (Scorzonero-Juncion gerardii communities) of the Pannonic plain. The Scorzonero-Juncion gerardii formations are well represented in particular in western Pannonia, in the Neusiedler See (Lake Ferto) basin and in the Danube-Tisza interfluvial region.
