Notes: Alopecurus pratensis s. str. is adventive in many places in the Arctic and is established at least in Iceland, Norway, and European Russia. Tzvelev (PAF proposal) regarded it as native in the Arctic in European Russia and Siberia, whereas Sekretareva (1999) regarded it as adventive. It is persisting but not effectively reproducing in Greenland (Pedersen 1972).
