Puccinellia distans communities on industrial sites in the Ruhr area: Association of Puccinellia distans in Europe



Puccinellia distans communities on industrial sites in the Ruhr area: Association of Puccinellia distans in Europe



Tuexenia 0(13): 445-465



One of the remarkable results from studying the spontaneous vegetation on industrial sites in the Ruhr Area (Western Germany) was the high presence of Puccinellia distans on sites of the iron and steel industry. This publication gives an overview of the plant communities with Puccinellia distans of these sites, belonging to the classes Chenopodietea, Agropyretea and Plantaginetea. The species is very much favored by human activity and is bursting into rural areas. It is known for growing on contaminated land and highly polluted areas and was used at different times to classify such areas. Ecologists, botanists and plant sociologists have produced many publications of this popular species. A constancy table gives an overview about Puccinellia distans in rural areas of Europe.
