Update on maxima of fine-scale vascular plant species richness in a Transylvanian steppe meadow

Jan Roleček, Pavel Dřevojan, Petra Hájková, Irina Goia & Michal Hájek
We report new maxima of vascular plant species richness ever recorded in 10-m2 plots (115 and 110 species in two adjacent plots). Both come from a steppe meadow at a well-known site Valea Lui Craiu, located in the Fânaţele Clujului grassland complex close to the city of Cluj in Transylvania, Romania, where maximum values have been observed before. We also correct the previously pub-lished maximum of 106 species, which was recorded in a 10.9-m2 plot...

Nuphar pumilais a glacial relict, which is nowadays rare throughout Europe and red-listed in most European regions. In Switzerland only three autochthonous populations and one population of the hybrid with N. lutea (N. ×spenneriana) have survived to date, one of them in the canton of Zurich. To protect this species regionally, the canton of Zurich has commissioned the ex situ propagation of speci-mens, which then had been introduced to 37 water bodies in protected areas,...
