Year: 2019
Volume: 50
Pages: 225-240.


Abstract: In this paper, eleven alien plant species are presented, two of them are reported for the first time in the Republic of Moldova (Euphorbia maculata, Gaillardia pulchella), one of them has so far been reported only from a botanical garden (Oenothera glazioviana), and eight species were previously known from a few localities in Moldova (Amaranthus powelii, Centaurea diff usa, Grindelia squarrosa, Gypsophila perfoliata, Ruta graveolens, Silphium perfoliatum, Sorghum halepense and Tragus racemosus). We a lso present an indigenous species which behaves as invasive (Rumex thyrsifl orus). We collected plants primarily on roadsides, along railway lines and in settlements, less often in natural habitats. Our goal is to report scattered data here. Voucher specimens were deposited in the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Botanical Department, Herbarium Generale (BP).
