Description

Taxon: Populus nigra (female - fruit)
2010-03-28 Lower Austria, district Bruck/Leitha (190 msm Quadrant 7965/2)
German name: Schwarz-Pappel
ID source: Fischer & al., Exkursionsflora für Österreich, Liechtenstein und Südtirol (2008, 3rd edition)
Habitat: Dry Danube rubble terrace on most likely calciferous soil. From the same population as the one shown here.
Occurrence: Common enough but in many of its original habitats suppressed and replaced by hybrid poplars, and for this reason (ingression of hybrid poplar genes!) pure black poplar populations are genetically endangered.
