Seewinkel Lepidium swards

English name: Seewinkel Lepidium swards

Description (English)

Endemic community of the Seewinkel, in the eastern Neusiedlersee basin, developed along the shores of salt ponds, where it occupies higher ground or more landward locations of the solonchak belt than the Puccinellia swards of unit E6.2142, and is submitted to more extreme conditions of high saltiness and summer soda efflorescences resulting from a briefer annual period of soaking and less frequent inundations. Lepidium cartilagineum ssp. crassifolium dominates alone or in association with Puccinellia festuciformis ssp. intermedia (Puccinellia peisonis).
