Distribution patterns, history, and dynamics of peatland vascular plants in Pomerania (NW Poland) Pomerania is rich in various peatlands (fens, transitional bogs, raised bogs, spring-water mires, etc.), which support many rare and threatened plant species. This study was aimed: (1) to determine the phytogeographic diversity of Pomeranian peatland vascular plants associated with the classes Oxycocco-Sphagnetea and Scheuchzerio-Caricetea nigrae; (2) to attempt a reconstruction of the history of… 
Distribution and habitat properties of Carex pulicaris and Pedicularis sylvatica at their range margin in NW Poland
This paper presents the distribution dynamics, soil and phytocoenotical conditions of the occurrence of Carex pulicaris and Pedicularis sylvatica at the margin of their range in NW Poland. Dynamic
Synanthropization of the Baltic-type raised bog “Roby” (NW Poland)
Abstract Raised and transitional peat bogs, despite their considerable resistance to synanthropization, as a result of anthropogenic transformations are exposed to the colonisation by alien species.
Biological Flora of Britain and Ireland: Hammarbya paludosa
This account presents information on all aspects of the biology of Hammarbya paludosa (L.) Kuntze (bog orchid, bog adder's‐mouth orchid) (Malaxis paludosa (L.) Sw., Ophrys paludosa L.), that are
Natural and Anthropogenic Transformations of A Baltic Raised Bog (Bagno Kusowo, North West Poland) in the Light of Dendrochronological Analysis of Pinus sylvestris L.
Dendrochronological methods, combined with an analysis of old maps and other historical records, allowed us to reconstruct transformations of the ecosystem with a high resolution and indicate that the dominant factors affecting tree growth dynamics in the bog are changes in the hydrological system.
Birch Bog on Anthropogenically Transformed Raised Bogs. A Case Study from Pomerania (Poland)
Birch bog is formed on the margins of or within raised bogs, on secondary habitats. The study aim was to understand the vegetation and mycological diversity of birch bog on the background of habitat
Carex pulicaris abundance is positively associated with soil acidity, rainfall and floristic diversity in the eastern distribution range
Carex pulicaris is considered an endangered species, and further losses are forecast under the influence of even moderate climate change. Local studies indicate that temporal declines in C. pulicaris
Geobotanical distinction using the floristic method: example of the Polish Pomerania
In the geobotanical division of Poland, Pomerania was treated as a separate subdivision, divided into “coastal plains” and the “Pomeranian uplands” or, in the newest regionalization, the “Pomeranian
Carex flava agg. (section Ceratocystis, Cyperaceae) in Poland: distribution maps and locality lists
List of localities and distribution maps of Carex taxa of the section Ceratocystis in Poland using material deposited in Polish herbaria and private collections as well as material collected during field research in 2007-2012 indicate that C. viridula is frequent in Poland, whereas C. hostiana is the rarest one.
Distribution and dynamic trends of Pedicularis sylvatica L. in Poland
This paper presents the distribution of Pedicularis sylvatica, an endangered species across the whole Poland. In order to illustrate its dynamics four time periods were taken into consideration:

Phytogeography of Italian deciduous oak woods based on numerical classification of plant distribution ranges
The oak woods of Italy differ from their central-European counterparts as to the relatively high floristic diversity, and in the presence of several narrow-ranging taxa, centred in different refugial areas for forest vegetation during the glacial period.
Distribution changes of endangered peatland vascular plants in Western Pomerania (Poland)
How the distribution of the vascular plant species Carex pulicaris and Pedicularis sceptrum-carolinum has changed in Western Pomerania, Poland, since the 19 th century is discussed.
Patterns of species richness and distribution of pteridophytes in Rwanda (Central Africa): a numerical approach : Mainly Southern Hemisphere
The results of the analyses show that the humidity gradient is the main factor influencing the differentiation of the flora and species richness of pteridophytes in Rwanda and the block clustering method seems to be suitable for finding geographically and floristically homogeneous areas.
Atlas of distribution of vascular plants in Poland (ATPOL)
The Atlas of Distribution of Vascular Plants in Poland (ATPOL) is a new project in floristic cartography in eastern central Europe being realized by the cartogram method. The basic map unit is a
Man and vegetation in the Pollen diagrams from Wolin Island (NW Poland)
Pollen, charcoal and ash content data complemented by 26 C dates from three small (4-5 ha) basins on Wolin Island (NW Poland) enabled a detailed chronological reconstruction of human impact on
Thirty years of change in the vegetation communities of three valley mires in Suffolk, England
It is concluded that maintenance of stable hydrologies is more important than extensive management in the long-term conservation of these sites.
