However, both the grassy and woody vegetation of the central Apennines is easily distinguishable from the coenological and physiognomical impact of the amphi-Adriatic component which is due to the common paleoclimatical and paleobotanical events shared by the central Apennines and the Dynarids.The most common and physiognomically important amphi-Adriatic species in the central Apennines include there are Sesleria junci-folia, Carex kitaibeliana, Edrajanthus graminifolius, Globularia meridionalis, Drypis spinosa, Thymus striatus, Cytisus spinescens, Daphne oleoides, (etc.) for subalpine grasslands and shrublands and Carpinus orientalis, Ostrya carpinifolia, Fraxinus ornus, Quercus cerris and Quercus frainetto for hilly and submontane woodlands.
Physiognomic species are Drypis spinosa, Festuca dimorpha and Cerastium tomentosum.
