The bryophytes of Hocking County, Ohio, have been collected for more than a century. Ninety, or 73% of Ohio's liverwort species, and 236, or 60% of Ohio moss species have been found growing on its dry oak ridges, sandstone rock exposures, and moist hemlock ravines. Crane Hollow Preserve, a private natural area comprising 704 ha, supports 49, or 40% of Ohio's liverwort species, and 167, or 43% of Ohio moss species.
Fifty-five lichen species have been identified from the 120-acre Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area (ONA), located in southeast Florida. The ONA habitat is comprised of sand pine scrub, oak scrub, and coastal hammock. While our emphasis was on documenting macrolichens, several microlichens were identified. Relative abundance ratings were assigned to each lichen species based on its frequency in the ONA and in Florida. The rating of “rare” for the ONA does not necessarily imply that the species is rare in Florida, but it would be considered rare at the ONA, in most cases because of the area's small size. The sole exception is for the federally endangered Cladonia perforata, which is rare throughout its range. For each species, we used the Consortium of North American Lichen Herbaria to determine the number of known sites from Florida compared to their regional and global geographic distribution. Global distribution patterns are generalized, but no attempt at a global abundance ranking was made. Biogeographic patterns are presented for each species, as well as ecological and climate change considerations regarding management actions on this relatively small nature preserve.
170 species of bryophytes, including 141 species of mosses, and 29 species of liverworts are reported from Delaware County, New York. A total of 48 new county records have been recorded. Ulota drummondii, a species previously unknown from New York State, as well as the rare species Plagiothecium latebricola are among the species reported new for the county. This flora is the first known county-wide bryophyte survey in the Catskills Region of New York State. After examination of collections from herbaria, field surveys were conducted during the spring and summer months of 2013 and 2014. To ensure sufficient sampling across the county, two sampling regions were selected from within each of the county's 19 townships. The location of each sampling region was determined using USDS land cover data in order to capture as much habitat diversity as possible. Floristic habitat sampling was then used at each of the thirty-eight collection sites.
