Open access

Abstract

Saxifraga aizoides L. is endangered in the Ukrainian Carpathians. It became extinct in the Chyvchyny Mts and its only remaining metapopulation in the Chornohora Mts is in gradual decline. The paper gives the exact location, morphological characters, population parameters and habitat conditions of the species in the Chornohora locality, and briefly discusses the main threat factors.
