The rare moss species Hennediella heimii (Pottiaceae) was established in in vitro culture. Various treatments were tested to achieve axenical cultures. The most effective sterilising procedure was NaDCC treatment of sporophytes, keeping the spore viability and giving high disposal of xenic cohabiting organisms. The effects of plant growth regulator...

57 bryophyte taxa were recorded in semi-natural forests of the Pannonian sandy forest steppe in the northern part of the Great Hungarian Plain. Four species are included (Eurhynchium striatum, Fissidens viridulus, Nyholmiella obtusifolia, Orthotrichum patens) in the national red list of bryophytes. 24 taxa (22 epiphytes and two terricolous species)...

The extent to which species can balance out the loss of suitable habitats due to climate warming by shifting their ranges is an area of controversy. Here, we assess whether highly efficient wind-dispersed organisms like bryophytes can keep-up with projected shifts in their areas of suitable climate. Using a hybrid statistical-mechanistic approach a...

A total of 179 bryophyte taxa (25 liverworts and 154 mosses) were collected in Galičica National Park (Republic of North Macedonia). Twenty-one species (7 liverworts and 14 mosses) that are rare and threatened in the Balkans, or even in Europe, were found in the investigated area. In Galičica National Park the most important habitat types for natur...

Article
Ephemeral bryophytes are short-lived species that can germinate and finish their whole life cycle within a brief period when favourable conditions occur. A significant number of these specialist species are associated with moist and fine-textured substrata of the margins of lakes, reservoirs and rivers, also known as drawdown zones. Our study of th...

The European Red List is a review of the status of European species according to IUCN regional Red Listing guidelines. It identifies those species that are threatened with extinction at the regional level – in order that appropriate conservation action can be taken to improve their status. This publication is a summary of the conservation status of...
Article
Bryophytes are typically seen as extremely efficient dispersers. Experimental evidence suggests that efficient short‐distance dispersal coupled with random long‐distance dispersal (LDD) leads to an inverse isolation effect. Under the latter, a higher genetic diversity of colonizing propagules is expected with increasing isolation, counteracting dif...

Conservation biology of Entosthodon hungaricus, a rare bryophyte in Serbia, has been studied. Active protection measures, i.e. study of distribution, ecological and biological features of the target species and in vitro propagation, have been taken into account to overcome threat problems affecting native populations. The final goal was to execute...

Seventy bryophytes are reported new to (or confirmed for) Albania from a meeting of the British Bryological Society in 2014, based in the Valbona Valley. The high number of new records reflects the poor state of our knowledge of the bryoflora of the country. Many of the newly recorded species have Alpine, Boreal or even Arctic affinities. However t...

Hamatocaulis vernicosus is rare and threatened species Europe-wide, and it is a member of many national red lists. The main reason for this can be regarded as habitat quality changes. The last records from Hungary comes from 1968, and in years after despite of intensive search it was not found in any historically known habitats. Thus, it was consid...

Bryophytes, with their reduced morphologies and challenging taxonomy, appear as ideal candidates for the application of the fast-developing tools of molecular species delimitation. Here, we apply species delimitation techniques to the moss genus Rhynchostegiella, which has long served as a convenient repository for small pleurocarpous species. Spec...

The Sphagnum flora of Serbia represented by 24 species is relatively rich, but they are rare and of scattered distribution. Many species have not been recorded in the course of recent field investigations and some other were newly found. The habitats of these species are under pressure, and the sphagna suffer from both global and local environmenta...

229 bryophyte taxa (34 liverworts and 195 mosses) were collected in the Mavrovo National Park (Republic of Macedonia). Almost all habitat types maintain diverse bryophyte assemblages containing several species rare on the Balkans or even species of European conservation interest. Th ree species found (Buxbaumia viridis, Grimmia caespiticia, and Pse...

Mosses are traditionally used as ornamental plants, especially in Japan, USA, England (moss gardens) and Germany, French (greenroofs). In shadow areas (where the members of Poaceae usually cannot grow well), mosses are potentially use as “grass”. The stocks of mosscolonies maintain optimal microclimate and decrease desiccation of soils (like mulch)...

A total of 126 bryophyte taxa (12 liverworts and 114 mosses) were collected in the Ibar gorge and its surroundings. The climate of the gorge receives Mediterranean influence, hence almost one fourth part of the species found are Mediterranean, sub-Mediterranean, or sub-Atlantic elements. Several rare species in Serbia and in the Balkans can be foun...

Bryophyte diversity deserves the same conservation interests as some other groups of organisms. As other plants they suffer from rapid environmental changes and often can not react quickly or in appropriate manner to stay alive ie. survive. The passive measure of protection, legislative development often fail to achieve the population survival. Thu...

Bryophytes are often neglected in conservation initiatives. However, they suffer from the sever habitat alternation, climate change or simply decline in nature for some other reasons, as the other living beings. The reasons for declining in nature are important, but hard to identified especially for the species that are highly threatened, few, and...
