Growth forms in meadow associations at the southern foot of the swiss jura



Growth forms in meadow associations at the southern foot of the swiss jura



Tuexenia (4): 195-216



The physiognomy of some plant associations is described for several stands in terms of: growth-forms of all plants, leaf forms and size, trichomes, scleromorphy and succulence. These data are presented in analogy to phytosociological tables. Instead of species, growth-form, leaf and trichome types were noted. The resulting associations may be characterized as follows: meadow (Dauco-Salvio-Mesobrometum) tall, densely closed stands with many relatively big leaves and many grasses; pasture (Alchemillo-Cynosuretum) similar to meadow, but with more patches of creeping and rooting plants; many species with spines, woody plants present; mesoxerophytic meadow (Teucrio-Mesobrometum) dense stands with many species, rich in growth forms and different leaf sizes; tall plants in patches. Xerophytic meadow (Teucrio-Xerobrometum). Open and low stands, the plants often in closed patches, leaves usually small, growth forms of rocky habitats present; scree heath (Alysso-Sedion). Low stands, open, with many mosses and lichens, important growth-forms, succulents, plants with rosettes and cushion plants, leaves small, with protection against transpiration. Drawings of the vegetation along transects of 1 m length are presented.
