About this book

Language: Dutch

In marshes, forest, and heath, on church walls, sea dikes and roof tiles, almost everywhere mosses and lichens give colour to our environment. Just like vascular plants species with similar habitat requirements grow together and form communities. This guide given an overview of all the communities of mosses and lichens in the Netherlands that have so far escaped attention. You will be amazed at their diversity.

De Vegetatie van Nederland, Volume 6 for the first time provides an overview of all recorded moss and lichen communities in the Netherlands. The book treats aquatic, epiphytic and terrestrial associations, divided over 16 classes. The species composition per class is shown in synoptic tables. Furthermore, all associations are supported by recordings of vegetation, and have been tabulated.

- Introduction with definitions and nomenclature, connections with other plant communities, the bryolichen complex, substrate, environment, microbiotopes, ecological indicator indices, and recording methods
- Description of all Dutch moss and lichen communities since 1990
- For each class: diagnostic species, ecology, succession, value and population trends, syntaxonomical divisions, and differences with other classes
- Synoptic table: species composition with all unique and diagnostic species
- Identification using dichotomous keys, and characteristic species combinations and properties such as substrate and location
- For each (sub)assocations information such as unique species, ecology and distribution in the Netherlands
- For each association a table with ten floristically characteristical recordings with scientific and Dutch species names

This book continues earlier parts in this series. A unique reference work for bryologists, lichenologists and managers. Also accessible to amateur naturalists.

Summary in Dutch:
In moeras, bos en hei, op kerkmuren, zeedijken en dakpannen, haast overal geven mossen en korstmossen kleur aan onze leefomgeving. Net als vaatplanten groeien soorten met overeenkomstige milieueisen bij elkaar: ze vormen gemeenschappen. Deze gids geeft een beeld van alle tot nu toe onbelicht gebleven gemeenschappen van mossen en/of korstmossen in Nederland. De diversiteit zal u verbazen!

De Vegetatie van Nederland, Volume 6 brengt voor het eerst alle in Nederland waargenomen gemeenschappen van mossen en korstmossen in één overzicht samen. Het boek behandelt alle aquatische, epilitische, epifytische en terrestrische associaties, verdeeld over 16 klassen. De soortensamenstelling is per klasse weergegeven in synoptische tabellen. Ook alle associaties zijn met vegetatieopnamen onderbouwd en in tabelvorm opgenomen.

- Inleiding met definities en naamgeving, relatie met andere plantengemeenschappen, het bryolichenologisch complex, substraat, milieu, microbiotopen, ecologische indicatiegetallen en opnamemethodiek
- Beschrijvingen van alle Nederlandse mossen- en korstmossengemeenschappen (vanaf 1990)
- Per klasse: diagnostische soorten, ecologie, successie, natuurwaarde en trend, syntaxonomische indeling, verschil met andere klassen
- Synoptische tabel: soortensamenstelling met alle ken- en diagnostische soorten
- Determinatie met behulp van dichotome sleutels, kenmerkende soortcombinaties en eigenschappen zoals substraat en groeiplaats
- Per (sub)associatie informatie zoals kensoorten, ecologie en verspreiding in Nederland
- Per associatie een tabel met 10 floristiek karakteristieke opnamen met wetenschappelijke en Nederlandse soortnamen

Het boek sluit hiermee aan op de eerdere delen van De Vegetatie van Nederland. Een uniek naslagwerk voor bryologen, lichenologen en natuurbeheerders. Ook prima toegankelijk voor amateurs en liefhebbers.
