Year: 2016
Volume: 47
Pages: 141-150.


Abstract: Altogether 40 species (5 liverworts and 35 mosses) were collected in the studied saline grasslands in the Pannonian region of Serbia and Croatia. The following bryophyte species are characteristic both in the Serbian and Croatian sites: Barbula unguiculata, Brachythecium albicans, Bryum algovicum, B. dichotomum, B. ruderale, Didymodon sicculus, Drepanocladus aduncus, Microbryum davallianum, M. floerkeanum, Phascum cuspidatum, Protobryum bryoides, and Pseudocrossidium hornschuchianum. Most of these are typical elements of the bryophyte assemblages living on the saline-alkaline grasslands of the Danube–Tisza Interfluve in Hungary. Didymodon sicculus is reported for the first time in Croatia here. Microbryum floerkeanum is included in the Red data book of European bryophytes. In addition, in the studied Serbian saline sites another European red-listed species, Entosthodon hungaricus, is also present. Two thalloid liverworts, rare in SE Europe, Oxymitra incrassata and Riccia nigrella, were found in one Serbian site.
