Abstract: Terricolous and saxicolous bryophytes and lichens of six areas of maquis and phrygana stands were studied in the regions of Chania, Rethimno, Iraklion and Lasithi (Crete) during a field trip in April, 1997. Floristical evaluation and comparison of the different maquis and phrygana stands were carried out using the European distribution of the bryophyte species and bryophyte life strategy categories. In the stands investigated 19 liverworts, 47 mosses and 31 lichen species were collected. Three bryophyte and 4 lichen species are new to Crete. A vulnerable liverwort species were found in Rethymno region in the maquis stands of Mt Psiloritis. Acrocarpous mosses and xerotolerant thalloid liverworts have great importance in the species composition of the stands of Mediterranean vegetation type and they are represented by many species in the stands investigated.
