Intermediate disturbance by off-road vehicles promotes endangered pioneer cryptogam species of acid inland dunes

Psammophilous grassland communities of inland dunes often occurring together with common juniper scrub are among the most threatened habitat types in Central Europe. Once they were related to disturbance caused by traditional agriculture and forest management (sheep grazing, burning, litter raking and overexploitation of forests). Currently, after the above-mentioned drivers have disappeared, those communities are subjected to secondary succession leading to loss of their typical biodiversity, an importantcomponent of which are cryptogams (bryophytes and lichens)....
