The station Trebon, is a wetland located in the South Bohemia, Czech Republic, centre of the Trebon Basin Biosphere Reserve, and it is a flat depression with an area of 450 ha. The site is situated in the inundation area of a large human-made lake (Rozmberk fishpond, surface area about 5 km2). According to the FAO soil classification, the type of soil is histosol (HS), it is saturated by water and has non-decomposed organic matter in deeper soil layers. The water level is controlled by a system of ditches, which interconnect the system of man-made lakes (fishponds) in the region, and is thus fairly stable throughout the year except during flood events, when the water level can reach a height of two meters above the soil surface. The vegetation of the site is formed mainly by tall sedges and wetland grasses. This community is classified as Caricetum gracilis Almquist 1929. The other species include Glyceria maxima (Hartm.) Holmb and Acorus calamus L.. Phalaris arundinacea L. is used to colonize only the banks of the drainage ditches and small patches of sandy substrate within continuous stands of tall sedges.
