Contribution to the bryophyte flora of Chalkidiki, Greece

Authors:

Abstract

As the result of a collecting trip to the peninsula of Chalkidiki in NE Greece in autumn 2002, 169 bryophyte taxa were recognized. Three of these, Ephemerum serratum, Riccia beyrichiana and Thuidium delicatulum, are new records for Greece, six are new records for mainland Greece, 23 for NE Greece and 19 for Chalkidiki. The high percentage of new records (31 %) demonstrates the poor state of the bryological exploration of Greece. An annotated catalogue of the collected taxa is presented, including notes on substrates and associated bryophytes.

Blockeel, T. L. 2020. The bryophyte flora of the island of Kythera, Greece. – Herzogia 33: 225 –239.A list of bryophytes from the Greek island of Kythera is presented, based on a field survey in March 2019. A total of 113 taxa were identified from the collections. Cephaloziella calyculata is reported for the second time in Greece, and other notable records include Clevea spathysii, Frullania calcarifera, Bryum cellulare, Campylopus brevipilus, Campylostelium pitardii and Entosthodon obtusus. Seventeen taxa are newly reported for the Peloponnese floristic region of Greece.

Sabovljević, M. (2016): Bryophytes of saline areas in the Pannonian region of Serbia and Croatia. – Studia bot. hung. 47(1): 141–150. Abstract: Altogether 40 species (5 liverworts and 35 mosses) were collected in the studied saline grasslands in the Pannonian region of Serbia and Croatia. Th e following bryophyte species are characteristic both in the Serbian and Croatian sites: Barbula unguiculata, Brachythecium albicans, Bryum algovicum, B. dichotomum, B. ruderale, Didymodon sicculus, Drepanocladus aduncus, Micro-bryum davallianum, M. fl oerkeanum, Phascum cuspidatum, Protobryum bryoides, and Pseudocros-sidium hornschuchianum. Most of these are typical elements of the bryophyte assemblages living on the saline-alkaline grasslands of the Danube–Tisza Interfl uve in Hungary. Didymodon sicculus is reported for the fi rst time in Croatia here. Microbryum fl oerkeanum is included in the Red data book of European bryophytes. In addition, in the studied Serbian saline sites another European red-listed species, Entosthodon hungaricus, is also present. Two thalloid liverworts, rare in SE Eu-rope, Oxymitra incrassata and Riccia nigrella, were found in one Serbian site.
... It is reported from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Slovenia by Düll et al. (1999) and Montenegro (only from two localities (Papp and Erzberger 2007)). Th ere are several records from various parts of Greece (Düll 1995, Erzberger 2006. As an aquatic species, it is vulnerable to pollution and to water regime changes predicted in the Mediterranean area due to global climate fl uctuations. ...

Syntrichia sinensis, Ditrichum gracile and Orthotrichum cupulatum var. fuscum are reported from the higher parts of the mountains of Southern — Central Greece, being the first records for the country. Encalypta alpina, Syntrichia papillosissima, and Timmia bavarica, rare in the country, are again recorded in Greece. Ecological and chorological remarks are given for each of the reported species.

The names of all mosses published up to the end of August 2011 in the countries of the Mediterranean basin, the Macaronesian Islands and Bulgaria are compiled in an annotated checklist. The list comprises accepted names and synonyms, and provides explanatory annotations for ambiguous and disputed names. Literature references supporting the reports in each individual area are given only for taxa reported once or in a single locality. A total of 1168 accepted species and 81 infraspecific taxa are reported from the whole area.

Five years have passed since the last checklist with distributional data was published for European liverworts and hornworts. The present list updates the nomenclature, taxonomy and distribution, as well as Red List categories, for the liverworts and hornworts of Europe and Macaronesia.

The bryophyte flora of the Chalkidiki Prefecture (Nomos) in Greece has been studied, yielding a record of 138 bryophytes, (22 liverwort and 116 mosses). Twenty three species are newly recorded for Chalkidiki, 18 for north-east floristic region of Greece, 3 for the Greek mainland and one for Greece.

The first compilation list of mosses from Southeast Europe is presented. Up to date, the region of Southeast Europe includes 899 species or ca. 69.45% of the total moss flora of Europe. Thus the total number of bryophyte species in the region is 1171. The countries with richest moss flora are Romania and Slovenia. The level of knowledge on mosses occurring in each of the Southeast European countries is different and some regions and subregions stand out as extremely poorly known. The number of moss species is expected to increase with further investigations within the region of Southeast Europe.

New records of 38 hepatics and 87 mosses are reported from Greece. Leiocolea heterocolpos, Cephaloziella calyculata, Dicranella schreberiana, Hennediella stanfordensis, Weissia levieri, Grimmia alpestris and Grimmia torquata are believed to be new to the country. Claviform propagules formed by the excurrent nerve of the leaf are reported from a collection of Trichostomopsis australasiae.

Greece is a bryologically scarcely explored area. Even in the more investigated parts of the country plenty of new records can be explored. The present study deals with the aquatic and riparian bryophyte vegetation of two mountain streams in Greece in correlation with water quality. Studies on the bioindication role of bryophytes in aquatic environment started in several countries in the mid-seventies. Several publications contain data on water quality indications (saprobity) of bryophytes (Frahm 1974, Empain 1973, 1978, Penuelas & Sabater 1987, Vrhovšek et al. 1984, 1985).

Bryum laevifilum Syed is shown to be the correct name for plants hitherto known in Britain as B. subelegans Kindb. and B. flaccidum Brid. B. subelegans is a rare montane plant distinct from B. laevifilum and is reported here for the first time as a British species.
