Abstract

A list of 212 bryophyte species occurring in Estonian mires was compiled using published sources, databases, and specimens from Estonian herbaria. The highest number of species, 153, occur in fens, 98 species have been found in transitional mires, and 77 in bogs. Of the mire species 10 are protected by law and 42 are redlisted in Estonia. The present list is a basis for further scientific investigations and nature protection planning.

Keywords

bryophytes, mires, threatened species, protected species.
