Title: Contributions to the bryophyte flora of Croatia II. The Northern Velebit
Year: 2013
Volume: 44
Pages: 213-228.

Abstract: The bryophyte flora of the Northern Velebit (mainly in sites situated inside the National Park) was studied in 2011 and 2012. Special attention was paid to the old-growth and virgin beech-fir and spruce forests and to grasslands and open rocks in the subalpine belt. 191 bryophyte taxa (40 liverworts and 151 mosses) were recorded. Four species are reported here for the first time in Croatia (Isopterygiopsis muelleriana, Pseudoleskea patens, Trichodon cylindricus, Weissia rostellata). Six species are included in the Red data book of European bryophytes (Lophozia ascendens, Anomodon rostratus, Buxbaumia viridis, Pseudoleskea saviana, Rhynchostegiella tenuicaulis, Weissia rostellata). Additional 18 taxa (5 liverworts and 13 mosses) are regarded as rare in Southeast Europe. Based on our documentation of the bryophyte flora the Northern Velebit can be considered as an Important Bryophyte Area in Croatia.
