Article
Full-text available
Inland salt marshes are recognized as habitats of unique and valuable vegetation at the European scale. There is still a lack of generalization regarding its vegetation syntaxonomy and environmental requirements, which is needed for its effective protection. To falsify our hypothesis about vegetation dependence on environmental requirements we aime...

Full-text available
Natural inland salt marshes of the temperate zone, which have been under protection for years, are still endangered and are shrinking. Unfortunately, there are not many works devoted to practical solutions to this problem in the literature. To fill this gap the article presents the results of interdisciplinary research on the reclamation of inland...

This short note presents two localities of the common mistletoe growing on the common laburnum found in central Poland in the city of Toruń in 2020. The common laburnum is one of the rare hosts of this recently rapidly spreading semi-parasite. The presented relationship between the two species has so far been reported in only several publications,...

Invasive alien species (IAS) is a global problem that largely relates to human activities and human settlements. To prevent the further spread of IAS, we first need to know their patternof distribution, to determine which constitutes the greatest threat, and understand which habitats and migration pathways they prefer. Our research aimed to identif...

The metal content was determined using the WD-XRF method in the peat from the Wąpiersk bog and the Las Nadwelski bog (Welski Landscape Park, Poland). The results of the study show that the concentration of metals, especially heavy metals in peat bogs in Welski Landscape Park is low in general. In both bogs, the concentration of heavy metals was low...

Over 800 million hectares of land worldwide are affected by salinity. Predicted scenarios of global climate change include a rise in sea level, which may severely affect coastal forest areas. Black alder (Alnus glutinosa) is a tree species known to tolerate heavily waterlogged soils, but its salt resistance is still unclear. The aim of our study wa...

There is no sign of saturation in accumulation of alien species (AS) introductions worldwide, additionally the rate of spread for some species has also been shown to be increasing. However, the challenges of gathering information on AS are recognized. Recent developments in citizen science (CS) provide an opportunity to improve data flow and knowle...

Gentiana cruciata is a perennial herb found on soils rich in calcium carbonate, characteristic species of the dry grasslands Festuco-Brometea class. However, during the field work carried out in the area of Natura 2000 PLH 040040 „Zbocza Płutowskie”, there was observed that the majority of its sites are located in dry forms of Arrenatheretea mea...

This study presents changes in the quality of habitats between 1926 and 2013 in permanent units of forest division restored in the 19th century as a result of afforestation carried out in the landscape dominated by heaths and xerothermic grasslands. The research was conducted in the Zaborski Landscape Park, located in the north-western part of the...

Remote sensing methods are increasingly used for vegetation mapping as they make it possible to quickly acquire precise spatial data. Compared to the traditional terrain mapping, they are continuous, objective and reproducible. As part of the HabitARS project conducted between 2016 and 2018, an attempt was made to develop a remote sensing method to...

Surface sealing is one of the main causes of soil degradation in the European Union, together with erosion, decrease in the soil organic matter (SOM) content, compaction, and so on (European Commission 2006). Soils are degraded by sealing in all developed countries (e.g., the United States, Japan, and China), and this phenomenon also has an increas...

The objective of this paper is to discuss the role of environmental islands isolated in the agricultural landscape in the preservation of xerothermic and calcicolous epigeic lichens. The site of lichens associated with relict steppe vegetation, rare in northern Poland, has been preserved in the reserve "Ostnicowe Parowy Gruczna". The list of lichen...
Article

The paper presents a list of lichen species occurring in three quarries and on mine dumps located within the dust emission impact zone of the cement plant "Kujawy". The species occur in the lowlands far from their natural localities on limestone rocks in southern Poland. The study area is therefore a valuable habitat island for epilithic and epigei...
Article

The paper is to present the trends of typical species of meadow habitats to colonize the frontier habitats. The area of research is the fly-ash landfills in the power plant EDF Toruń SA in Toruń. Several times, during the year mix of fly-ashes and slug, resulting from the combustion of coal, is transported by pipeline and this is mixed with water....

The paper presents the location and general description of habitats and plant communities with common milkweed occurring within the city limits of Torun. The data set comprised new localities of this species as well as those where Asclepias syriaca has been observed for several years but the sites have not been described in the ecological literatur...

The part of one of largest inland dune fields in Poland is included in the administrative borders of the city of Toruń (N Poland). The dunes were formed chiefly in the Younger Dryas, but probably also in the Older Dryas and even in the Preboreal periods. In the future periods the relief was protected against denudation and eolian processes by a for...

The paper presents the results of tracking a pack of wolves carried out between January and February 2013 in the Forest Division of Solec Kujawski in Bydgoszcz Forest, which surrounds three cities – Bydgoszcz, Toruń and Solec Kujawski, and locally encroaches on their administrative areas. The behaviour of wolves and their migration routes were dete...
Article
Full-text available
The dune hill in Folusz is one of the most interesting sites with xerothermic vegetation in the Polish lowland. It is different from other sites by the fact that xerothermic vegetation covers a single dune located amidst large areas of Molinia meadows rather than slopes of river valleys. Vegetation occurring on the hill represents a cold Stipa step...

The relief of the Zadroże Dune was described, as well as the comparison was done on its vegetation cover and the flora in its two phases of the development, i.e. before the afforestation of the dune and approximately 60 years after reconstruction of the forest. The first state was described in the paper dated 1949. During that period the dune const...

In 2006 and 2008 three new anthropogenic localities of Poa bulbosa L. fo. vivipara Koeler were found near Włocławek. This rare (in central and north of Poland) species grew on sunny, dry, sandy and moderately disturbed habitats, among pine woods, near bathing beaches at Wikaryjskie, Czarne and Łuba lakes (ATPOL DC 73, 83).

This study aimed at comparing the flora of 29 early medieval earthworks, characterised by various degrees of anthropogenic transformation, in order to demonstrate their role as refuges of rare plant species. The earthworks were classi-fied according to their index of total synanthropization (WS c), which was assumed to indicate the level of florist...

This study presents the results of research conducted at two early-medieval fortified settlements situated on the border of Wysoczyzna Chetmihska (Chehninska Upland) and neighbouring areas. Phytosociological surveys were performed on site and compared with literature data concerning analogous plant communities from less synanthropised areas. The in...

This research project aims to analyse one of the most vulnerable forest landscapes, present in Northern Poland, viz, Tuchola Forest Biosphere Reserve. i. To Study natural disasters since 20th century within Poland to understand the effect on forest landscape structures ii. To analyse the ecological consequences after the (2017) hurricane disaster in Tuchola Forest iii. To gain a better understanding of the landscape metrices best suited for forest disturbance caused by a natural disaster
