Title: Bryological research of Croatia – a historical overview
Year: 2012
Volume: 43
Pages: 5-12.

Abstract: Croatia has a long history of bryological research, started in the first decades of the 19th century. However, the research activities were mostly sporadic and occasional, with only a few comprehensive works on the subject. After the peak at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, a new wave of bryological works in the 1950s and 1960s were mostly focusing on karst rivers. Most data appeared in Pavletić’s Prodromus (published in 1955) more like a summation of several previous species lists, containing relatively few new records. With regard to the current situation of Croatian bryology, renewed field research is urgently needed to assess the real status of the bryophyte flora of Croatia.
