Abstract The rupicolous vegetation of the alliance Rumici indurati-Dianthion lusitani in the central-western Iberian Peninsula is analysed using the methods of the Zürich-Montpellier school. This paper provides phytosociological tables and biogeographical, ecological and floristic data for this alliance. Two new syntaxa are also described: Rumici indurati-Anarrhinetum durimini and Phagnalo saxatilis-Antirrhinetum lopesianii. These Lusitan Duriensean phytocenoses are compared with those of other…

Taxonomic composition and ecological characteristics of the endemic flora of the lower Duero Basin (Iberian Peninsula)

The taxonomical composition and an analysis of four ecological characteristics of the 46 endemic species occurring in the lower Duero Basin have been made and it is revealed that this endemic flora does not comply with the general patterns previously observed in other floras.

Reproductive success and variation in floral traits in the Iberian Peninsula endemic white campion Silene marizii (Caryophyllaceae)

All five morphometric traits, plus the number of ovules per ovary, varied significantly between flower positions on the same plant and among populations and an analysis was made of how floral morphology varies with the position of the flower in the inflorescence.

Phytogeochemical, geographical and vulnerability study of the Paleosubtropical element Notholaena marantae subsp. marantae (Sinopteridaceae) at the western edge of its range

Serpentine outcrops are distinct from their background geological context, as they are often isolated from one another, and provide a home to a significant number of rare or endemic taxa. The aim of
