Oceaniska epifyter – de globala miljöförändringarnas stora vinnare.

Tyler, Torbjörn LU (2018) In Botaniska Notiser : utgivna av Lunds botaniska förening (2001-)2001-01-01+01:00 151(2). p.25-30
Abstract
The recent more or less complete return and recovery in Skåne, southern-most Sweden, of epiphytic bryophyes known to have suffered from atmospheric pollution in the mid 1900’s, e.g. Zygodon rupestris, Antitrichia curtipendula, Leucodon sciuroides, Orthotrichum lyellii, O. speciosum and O. stramineum, is here discussed and illustrated on maps. However, apart from these successful recoveries, at least four epiphytic species are now more common than probably ever before. Platygrium repens and Orthotrichum pulchellum both have almost 10 times as many post-1995 records as older records from the province and appear to be more widely distributed now than ever before, while Zygodon conoideus and Metzgeria frutulosa appear to have first colonised...

The recent more or less complete return and recovery in Skåne, southern-most Sweden, of epiphytic bryophyes known to have suffered from atmospheric pollution in the mid 1900’s, e.g. Zygodon rupestris, Antitrichia curtipendula, Leucodon sciuroides, Orthotrichum lyellii, O. speciosum and O. stramineum, is here discussed and illustrated on maps. However, apart from these successful recoveries, at least four epiphytic species are now more common than probably ever before. Platygrium repens and Orthotrichum pulchellum both have almost 10 times as many post-1995 records as older records from the province and appear to be more widely distributed now than ever before, while Zygodon conoideus and Metzgeria frutulosa appear to have first colonised the province during the very last decades. These four species have some characteristics in common. They all produce large amounts of propagules, they thrive also on young stems of trivial species with relatively low bark pH and, probably most important, they have oceanic global distributions and should thus be favoured by increasing temperatures, in particular frost-free winter conditions, and increased precipitation. Indeed, according to official climatic measurements in different parts of the province, the average temperature of the last decade has been 0.9–1.6° higher, and yearly precipitation has increased by 60–80 mm as compared to previous decades, thus lending support for the conclusion drawn in the title.
