Title: Historical and current distribution of Plantago tenuiflora in Slovakia
Year: 2016
Volume: 47
Pages: 151-162.


Abstract: Historical and current occurrences of the obligate halophyte Plantago tenuiflora were studied in Slovakia during 2001–2015. The species occurs in the Podunajská nížina and Východoslovenská nížina lowlands; 34 localities were documented including historical and current sites as well. Although the species was confirmed in both above-mentioned lowland areas, the number of localities decreased markedly and we recorded only 13 localities recently. The species was observed most frequently in the associations Artemisio santonici-Festucetum pseudovinae and Camphorosmetum annuae. As our data showed, Plantago tenuiflora belongs to the endangered plant species of the Slovak flora, since more than 60% of known localities were not confirmed recently. Due to the re-introduction of grazing in some locations, its populations are expected to grow.
