Recent occurrence of moss Buxbaumia viridis (Bryophyta, Buxbaumiaceae) in the Kłodzko region (Central and Eastern Sudetes, SW Poland)
A rare epixylous moss, Buxbaumia viridis (Moug. ex Lam. & DC.) Brid. ex Moug. & Nestl., was searched at historical localities in the Kłodzko region, especially in Bialskie and Bystrzyckie Mts. The species was rediscovered at two localities in the upper part of the valley of Jedlnik stream on the east slope of Iwinka Mt. in Puszcza Śnieżnej Białki Nature Reserve. This paper presents data on autecology of B. viridis at one of the rediscovered localities as well as shows its current distribution in the Kłodzko region.
This paper presents current distribution of the moss Diphyscium foliosum (Hedw.) D.Mohr in the Polish part of the Carpathians. Till this time, the species has been known from the 139 localities distributed through the whole territory, but with their distinct concentration in the Western Beskidy Mountains. The altitudinal limits, habitat preferences and its threats are briefly provided. Eighteen localities, mainly from Beskid Śląski and Beskid Sądecki ranges are reported for the first time.
The paper provides information about new localities of 118 species, including 2 hornworts, 22 liverworts and 94 mosses collected at the Ciężkowickie Foothills. The most interesting are bryophytes protected and threatened in Poland, for example Fossombronia wondraczekii, Nowellia curvifolia, Sphagnum compactum, Trichocolea tomentella and Weissia squarrosa.
The aim of this article is to present the history and the current state of Bryjarka hill, situated in Szczawnica (the Beskid Sądecki range in southern Poland) in relation to its environmental and cultural values. Another aim of this article is to show that Bryjarka hill plays an important role in the biological, geological and cultural aspects of the region. It represents cultural significance where the traces of human activities date back to medieval times.
