Description

Salix repens communities (Salicion arenariae), colonising wet dune slacks. Following the lowering of the ground water table or accumulation of drift sand, these communities may develop into mesophilous communities as the Pyrolo-Salicetum (with Pyrola rotundifolia, Viola canina, Monotropa hypopitys) or, into xerophilous Salix communities (with Carlina vulgaris, Thalictrum minus) or into Salix repens communities with Mesobromion elements.

Remarques

This habitat forms mosaics with other dune slack vegetation containing Salix arenaria but which is rich in bryophytes and referable to the Caricion davallianae (16.33), as well as mosaics with dune grasslands and with thickets with Rosa pimpinellifolia. This habitat is often invaded by Hippophae rhamnoides and Ligustrum vulgare.
