Vegetation of Europe: hierarchical floristic classification system of vascular plant, bryophyte, lichen, and algal communities
Aims: Vegetation classification consistent with the Braun-Blanquet approach is widely used in Europe for applied vegetation science, conservation planning and land management. During the long historyExpand

Atmospheric nitrogen deposition promotes carbon loss from peat bogs
Peat bogs have historically represented exceptional carbon (C) sinks because of their extremely low decomposition rates and consequent accumulation of plant remnants as peat. Among the factorsExpand

Habitat diversity of central European fens in relation to environmental gradients and an effort to standardise fen terminology in ecological studies
In this paper, we demonstrated that the bog-fen boundary is clearly determinable not by pH, but by a set of nutrient-requiring species that avoid truly ombrotrophic conditions in central Europe. WeExpand

Scale‐dependent biases in species counts in a grassland
. Numbers of plant species were recorded in species-rich meadows in the Bile Karpaty Mts., SE Czech Republic, with the aim to evaluate the sampling error made by well-trained observers. FiveExpand

Sphagnum distribution patterns along environmental gradients in Bulgaria
Abstract The distribution patterns of 18 Sphagnum species along base-richness and altitudinal gradients were studied in Bulgarian treeless wetlands which are noteworthy because of the edge-of-rangeExpand

The Variation of Testacean Assemblages (Rhizopoda) Along the Complete Base-Richness Gradient in Fens: A Case Study from the Western Carpathians
Summary. Most recent ecological studies of testate amoebae were conducted in acid Sphagnum-dominated mires. Little data exists about the variation in testacean assemblages along the complete gradientExpand

Bryophyte and vascular plant responses to base-richness and water level gradients in Western CarpathianSphagnum-rich mires
We investigated the importance of water chemistry and water regime for vascular plant and bryophyte species distribution in Western Carpathian mires dominated bySphagnum. Seventy-seven small circleExpand

Diversity of wetland vegetation in the Bulgarian high mountains, main gradients and context-dependence of the pH role
We fill a gap in understanding wetland vegetation diversity and relationship with environmental determinants in Bulgarian high mountains. A total of 615 phytosociological samples were taken fromExpand

Nutrient stoichiometry in Sphagnum along a nitrogen deposition gradient in highly polluted region of Central-East Europe.
We investigated the variation of N:P and N:K ratio in ombrotrophic Sphagnum plants along a gradient of atmospheric N deposition from 1 to 2.5 g m(-2) year(-1) in Central-East Europe. The N:P and N:KExpand
