K1a - Lowland Quercus robur-Carpinus betulus woodlands:

84% of its area is endangered by plant invasion. Most important invasive species are black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), goldenrod species (Solidago spp.) and American pokeweed (Phytolacca americana). There is high spatial variation in cover of alien plants, probably due to the differences in land use.
