Abstract: Tara National Park is one of the important refugia for many relict and endemic species and rare associations in Serbia. With its shaded outcrops and decaying dead wood in its old-growth forests, this area provides home for a large number of bryophytes and maintains a diverse flora. The bryoflora is rich in the wet places, meadows, fens and stream sides. Our investigation recorded 224 bryophytes (44 hepatics and 180 mosses) from this territory. Of this number, 36 taxa (13 hepatics and 23 mosses) are new for Serbia. Six species are included in the Red Data Book of European Bryophytes (ECCB 1995). Three species are European endemics. The bryophyte flora shows close relations to those of the mountainous habitats. Besides the species of the temperate zones of Europe, we recorded many borealsubboreal species, as well as several montane species with sub-Mediterranean andor suboceanic distribution.
