Using water chemistry to define ecological preferences within the moss genus Scorpidium, from Wales, UK
ABSTRACT Introduction Three Scorpidium species: S. scorpioides, S. cossonii and S. revolvens are often associated with habitats of high conservation value. This is the first attempt to define the
Relict occurrences of boreal brown-moss quaking rich fens in the Carpathians and adjacent territories
Quaking rich fens dominated by boreal semi-aquatic brown-mosses such as Scorpidium scorpioides and Calliergon trifarium are extremely rare in the Carpathians. These fens harbour endangered species
Vegetation and hydrogeology along the distribution range of Centaurium somedanum, an endemic plant of mountain calcareous springs
Calcareous springs support bryophyte-dominated habitats relevant to biodiversity and conservation, but not much is known about the ecology of vascular plants restricted to these environments. Here,
Changes in the moss layer in Czech fens indicate earlysuccession triggered by nutrient enrichment
It is concluded that nature conservancy authorities should monitor changes in the species composition of the moss layer as this may signal the initial phase of nutrient enrichment of seemingly intact fens in agricultural landscapes.
Conservation biology of Bryophytes
This paper addresses threats to bryophytes, and provides an evaluation process to determine how threatened a species is, along with suggested actions to conserve bryophical diversity and genetic material for the future.
Transplanting the leafy liverwort Herbertus hutchinsiae: a suitable conservation tool to maintain oceanic-montane liverwort-rich heath?
Ass colonisation is thus an option for this species to overcome dispersal limitation and to track future climate space, and provide an evidence base for practical conservation management.
Rich-fen bryophytes in past and recent mire vegetation in a successional land uplift area
Most rich-fen bryophyte species are currently declining and red listed in many European countries. Little is known about their past and current occurrence. We investigated past and recent bryophyte


Vegetation gradients of minerotrophically rich fens in western Alberta
The vascular plant and bryophyte vegetation of 50 stands in nine sites from the foothills of western Alberta were quantitatively sampled in order to determine the major vegetation gradients, with three phases recognized in the flarks.
Ion Exchange in Sphagnum and its Relation to Bog Ecology
The kinetics of cation exchange are consistent with a heterogeneous exchange phase containing regions of high charge density and regions with lower charge density, and at equilibrium the proportions of different cations in the exchange phase are largely explicable by a Donnan distribution.
Differentiation in habitat requirements within the genus Scorpidium, especially between S. revolvens and S. cossonii
Abstract A number of chemical habitat parameters for the species Scorpidium scorpioides, S. cossonii and S. revolvens were investigated in three areas in northern and southern Sweden. S. revolvens
The role of spores in reproduction in mosses
The facility for vegetative reproduction and reproduction by spores was compared in four common mosses by observations on naturally occurring spores, sporclings and juvenile shoots combined with experimental field plantings, showing contrasting life-history strategies shown by the four species.
