Download full pdf synopsis: FW3I
The tall grey stems of Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani dominated this swamp community. Occasionally, there is patchy cover of Phragmites australis or Samolus valerandi, most likely towards the landward edge of the stand, but all other species are scarce.
These stands have been recorded predominantly from lagoons and coastal lakes, but also, infrequently, from estuaries.
No sub-communities are currently described.
This is a distinct community which should be easily recognised.
This is very species-poor plant community, with relatively low recognised conservation value. Stands may occur fringing lagoons corresponding to the priority EU HD Annex I habitat 1150 Lagoons*.
These swamp stands are essentially unmanaged. The main threats to them are through eutrophication and drainage.
