A Medicago rigidula (L.) All. elterjedése és élőhely-választása a Pannonicumban
Molnár Csaba – Csiky János
This study sums up the occurrences of Medicago rigidula in the Pannonicum (Carpathian Basin). It characterizes the habitats from the point of view of physiognomy and floristics. According to the analyses of 26 phytocoenological relevés it can be established that 69.5% of the flora of the habitats indicates natural conditions, communities. Medicago rigidula prefers the habitats with shallow soil layer warming up easily, but usually scorched in midsummer: rocky grasslands, slope-steppes and other dry, disturbed, open grasslands with relatively large gaps. In these gaps a typical weed community lives without invasive species and with several, rare archaeophyton taxa.
