Abstract

A phytosociological investigation on the bryophytes of the Mediterranean temporary ponds in some territories of the insular and Central-Southern peninsular Italy (Latium, Campania, Sicily, Sardinia) is here presented. By combination of multivariate and phytosociological analyses we detected the presence of six communities of which two new records from Italy and two new associations. They are Riccietum gougetianae, Riccietum canaliculatae ass. nova and Riccio sorocarpae-Funarietum fascicularis subass. fossombronietosum, referable to the class Barbuletea unguiculatae, Pleuridio acuminati-Archidietum alternifolii ass. nova of the class Cladonio digitatae-Lepidozietea reptantis, the community with Campylopus introflexus of to class Ceratodono piliferi-Polytrichetea piliferi and Ricciocarpetum natantis of the class Lemnetea minoris. For the peculiarity of the communities and the occurrence of some species of phytogeographycal interest, the bryophytes should be more considered in the management and conservation policies.
