Title: Moss inhabiting siliceous algae from Hungarian peat bogs
Year: 2005

Abstract: Comparative analysis of LM and SEM documentation of Bacillariophyceae and Chrysophycean stomatocysts inhabiting peat mosses revealed new results for these groups. 97 diatom taxa and some Chrysophycean stomatocyst types were identified on 13 peat moss species from 11 localities. 6 diatoms are new records for Hungary. The alarming diminishing of the mires' territory in the Carpathian Basin encouraged us to contribute to the knowledge and document siliceous algae living here. The data on Chrysophycean stomatocysts from Hungarian peat bogs are published for the first time. The high species diversity in Eunotia and Pinnularia was characteristic to the diatom vegetation of the mires.
