The relation between the different varieties of the false-oat-grass meadow (arrbenantheretum elatiornis) and their respective environments is investigated in a study comprising the following methodical steps:

- The integral impression of a chosen variety is described and illustrated.
- Specimens of such plant species found on all the varieties of meadows are compared.
- Typical forms of growth typical for each meadow are selected and those species are viewed which characterise the respective varieties.

The reader should be stimulated to grasp the concept of this type of meadow in such a lively way that he will be able to derive its various forms from their respective environmental conditions.
