Abstract: We show that the decomposition group of a line $ L$ in the plane, i.e., the subgroup of plane birational transformations that send $ L$ to itself birationally, is generated by its elements of degree 1 and one element of degree 2, and that it does not decompose as a non-trivial amalgamated product.
