Thirty-seven species and subspecific taxa which belong to 12 genera and 2 families were identified, of which 17 species are new for the eastern macroslope of the Middle Urals. Canonical correspondence analysis, which was performed to reveal habitat preferences, demonstrates that the majority of analyzed species prefer quarry lakes, ponds and overgrown lake shores, contrary to fens and rivers.</p> </div> </div> </div> Andrei S.

Here we summarize all available data on the diversity of mosses of the Pasvik Reserve, including approximately 800 specimens collected by the authors. <em>Stereodon pallescens</em> and <em>Tayloria serrata</em> are in the Murmansk Region only known from the Pasvik Reserve. Seven species are red-listed in the Murmansk Region (<em>Bryum cyclophyllum, Buxbaumia aphylla, Encalypta streptocarpa, Psilopilum laevigatum, Tayloria serrata, Tayloria splachnoides</em> and <em>Tetrodontium repandum</em>). <em>Tetrodontium repandum</em> is included in the Red Data Book of the Russian Federation and <em>Tayloria splachnoides</em> is red-listed in Europe.

The revealed lichen biota comprises 435 species, including 378 lichens, 46 lichenicolous fungi and 11 non-lichenized saprobic fungi, of which 31 species (27 lichens and 4 lichenicolous fungi) are known only from collections made by Veli Räsänen (1917, 1938). <em>Acremonium hypholomatis</em> is reported for the first time for Russia; <em>Caloplaca soralifera, Trapelia corticola,</em> and <em>Muellerella lichenicola</em> for Northwestern European Russia; and <em>Bacidia vermifera, Lecanora mughicola, Micarea contexta, Pyrenochaeta xanthoriae, Rhizocarpon disporum, Stigmidium squamariae</em> and <em>Xylographa difformis</em> for Leningrad Region. From lichenological point of view, the most valuable habitats of Konevets Island are old-growth spruce forests. The studied lichen biota is rich and diverse and exceptionally well-preserved in comparison to the mainland part of Karelian Isthmus. It definitely deserves protection.</p> </div> </div> </div> Dmitry E. Himelbrant, Irina S. Stepanchikova, Ekaterina S. Kuznetsova, Jurga Motiejūnaitė, Ludmila A.

We used Estonian polypores as an example of how conservation options can be systematically screened, based on the Red List of threatened species and in co-operation with practitioners. For a total of 61 species, we identified a broad range of management options representing diverse approaches (site protection; prescriptions of land use; protection of individuals; special management; protection via umbrella species). The results demonstrated the merits of systematic and multi-disciplinary assessments for fungal conservation and setting related research priorities. Our assessment also supported a theoretical expectation that some ecosystem conservation strategies should be explicitly designed based on functionally important groups of fungi. The advancement of fungal conservation appears largely dependent on co-operation between mycologists, conservationists and managers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><strong>Eesti metsade seenestiku looduskaitsevõtted torikseente näitel</strong><br> Seenestiku looduskaitseks kasutatav võttestik on märksa halvemini välja arendatud kui loomade ja taimede puhul ning hõlmab peamiselt silmatorkavate ohustatud liikide leiukohtade kaitset. Töös kirjeldatakse Eesti torikseente näitel, kuidas sobivaid looduskaitsevõtteid saab süstemaatiliselt valida – lähtuvalt ohustatud liikide nimestikust ja koostöös looduskaitsepraktikutega. Kokku eristati 61 ohustatud torikseeneliigi kaitseks lai valik võtteid, mis hõlmasid erinevaid võimalusi alade kaitseks, üldisi maakasutusjuhiseid, isendite kaitset, intensiivseid kaitsevõtteid ja kaitset teiste liikide (katusliikide) kaudu.Tulemused näitavad süstemaatilise ja multidistsiplinaarse analüüsi efektiivsust seente kaitse ja sellega seotud uuringute planeerimisel. Analüüs kinnitas ka teoreetilist, torikseente funktsionaalsest tähtsusest lähtuvat eeldust, et mõned ökosüsteemide kaitse võttestikud tuleks kujundada just seente ökoloogiast lähtuvalt. Seenestiku looduskaitse peamine edenemistingimus paistab niisiis olevat koostöö mükoloogide, looduskaitseteadlaste ja -praktikute vahel.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Asko Lõhmus, Eike Vunk, Kadri Runnel ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 31 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +0300 A lesson in urban mycology: Critically Endangered polypore Trametes suaveolens (Basidiomycota) re-discovered in Estonia <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The conspicuous, mostly willow-inhabiting polypore <em>Trametes suaveolens</em> is a threatened species in Northern Europe.

The host trees are prone to removal due to city development and park care reasons.
