Abstract

The distribution and ecology of desmids in wetland habitats in the Czech Republic were studied during 2003–2007. Samples were taken also from various aerophytic habitats and temporary pools thet had not been sufficiently studied before. Altogether 110 desmids taxa were found in 31 samples which were ordinated on the basis of their desmid species composition using a multivariate statistic method. The discussion focuses on the most interesting findings and on the factors that influence the distribution of desmids in different types of aerophytic habitats.

Keywords: aerophytic habitats; desmids; drainage gutters; ecology; ephemeral pools; rare taxa; wet rocks
