Flora of the Troyeruchitsa State Reserve (Tver Oblast, Russia)

Pp. 4-31

Abstract. The flora of vascular plants of the Troyeruchitsa State Nature Reserve and three surrounding settlements was studied. In 2016–2019, I recorded 489 species of native and alien plants on an area of 10 km2 (supplemented with 12 species from papers published earlier) were revealed, including 456 species growing within the reserve and 45 species along its borders. An annotated checklist of the flora is presented. All known locations are given for species known from 1, 2 or 3 localities. Three species (Erigeron × huelsenii, Eupatorium purpureum, Rumex × heterophyllus) are novelties to the flora of Tver Oblast. Six native species are new to the flora of Ostashkovsky District (Monotropa hypophegea, Plantago uliginosa, Rosa × majorugosa, Rubus nessensis, Sparganium gramineum, Typha angustifolia) as well as 19 species of alien plants. Sixteen species from the Red Data Book of Tver Oblast and four species from the Red Data Book of the Russian Federation are reported from the reserve. A dataset of georeferenced photos uploaded on iNaturalist as part of the Troyeruchitsa Local Flora project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/lokalnaya-flora-troeruchitsa) encounts 434 observations of 358 species. High diversity of flora is the most important feature of the area.

Polyvariance of the habitus of virginal and young reproductive individuals of Quercus robur L. (Fagaceae) in phytocenoses of the Upper and Middle Oka river

Pp. 66-90

Abstract. From the perspective of the modular concept plasticity of crown architecture in virginal and young reproductive individuals of Quercus robur L. has been researched. The individuals grow in phytocenoses of the Upper and Middle Oka river. The plant communities are subdivided into three groups accordingly to their light level (% of the full light): mesophytic meadows (100%), grass birch stands and pineries with small gaps (35–55%), closed canopy pineries (15–30%). The total amount of individuals is 210. For each individual shape, growth habit and ramification of axes of the main structural units of crown. Meanings of quantitative parameters of shoot systems were selectively measured. Four architectural types have been distinguished: “Мeadow”, “Мargin”, “Forest 1”, “Forest 2”. The individuals of the meadow and margin types grow within the 1st and 2nd light level group communities respectively. The individuals of the forest types grow within the 3rd light level group community. In a series from the meadow type to the forest types ramification of biennial shoot systems simplifies while shape and structure of the branches from the trunk and trunk itself get more complex. Thus we figured out that Q. robur has a significant polyvariance of shoot systems, which leads to formation of qualitatively different habit types.

Ecology of Stratiotes aloides L. (Hydrocharitaceae) communities

within the territory of European Russia

Pp. 94-104

Abstract. Stratiotes aloides L. is a common species in European Russia. It plays an important role in the functioning of fresh, mesoeutrophic, low-flowing water bodies with silty-clay and organic bottom deposits. It was found that in European Russia S. aloides forms at least 24 associations related to 12 formations of freshwater macrophytic vegetation. At least 119 species take part in the formation of these associations. Phytocoenoses of associations Stratiotes aloides purum, Stratiotes aloides aquiherbosa, Stratiotes aloides + Lemna trisulca and Typha angustifolia – Stratiotes aloides are the most common.

Platanthera chorisiana Cham. (Orchidaceae),

a possible new member of the flora of European Russia

Pp. 116-124

Abstract. The article is devoted to the description of Platanthera chorisiana, an intriguing East Asiatic and North American Orchid, which was surprisingly discovered in an isolated locality in Moscow Region, although the possibility exists that the specimen might be mislabelled. This finding is discussed in the light of the presence of some other localities of this taxon, proved to be positioned outwards from its main distribution area, although not so distantly spaced. We provide analogies with other Orchids, especially with the recent sensational find of East Asiatic representative of genus Liparis in West Europe. In short, we discuss also some other peculiarities of Platanthera chorisiana, which put this species apart from other representatives of its genus.

Hemileccinum impolitum (Fr.) Šutara (Boletaceae)

is a candidate for inclusion in the Red Book of Belgorod Region

Pp. 166-178

Abstract. The article presents the results of studying the state of the regional population of Hemileccinum impolitum (Fr.) Šutara (=Boletus impolitus Fr.) on the territory of Belgorod Region of the Russian Federation. 3 habitats of this species have been identified in the region. It has been established that the threatening factors for H. impolitum in Belgorod Region are: the low frequency of occurrence of habitats with local populations, the point of local populations, the distances between the nearest populations, the disturbance (destruction) of habitats on cause of recreational load and the collection of fruit bodies. The following set of measures to maintain this species in nature is recommended: preservation of existing habitats and search for new ones in characteristic ecotopes; taking identified habitats under territorial protection; monitoring the number of known habitats at least once every 2−3 years; environmental education of the population.
