Abstract: Rivers and streams are heterogenous ecosystems that host a great number of vascular plant communities. The territory of Slovenia is highly diverse regarding geomorphologic, geologic, climatic, and edaphic conditions. We presumed that environmental variability will also affect the distribution of hygrophilous vascular plants in running waters and consequently the structure of plant communities they form. We analyzed macrophyte, spatial, and environmental parameters in 906 stretches of the watercourses occurring… Show more

“…According to the study of Sastrapradija et al, 1979, these species of ferns (Pteridophyta) is very suitable for ornamental plants and commonly found in the forest. Furthermore, the young leaves are utilized for various purposes, particularly vegetables and medicinal treatments in some disease (Arini and Kinho, 2012;Zelnik et al, 2021). Based on some review, various pteridophytes have properties that explicitly be used in alternative medicine for treatment of various human diseases and illnesses.…”

“…It often occurs in alkaline waters in oligotrophic and mesotrophic states [ 55 ]. It could be found as an emergent form in shallow water, with leaves partly floating on the surface in slow streams, and as a submerged form [ 56 ]. S. sagittifolia and filamentous algae prevailed in the lower part of the river in 2016, in the stretches, where in 1996 and 2000, P. natans was dominant.…”

“…A hydrological gradient and a fluctuating water level present major driving forces, which determine the distribution of different plant communities as well as plant species composition within them. This was evidenced in various aquatic ecosystems, such as wet-meadows [12], marshes [4], intermittent lake [15], flood-forests [11], ponds [10], lakes [3,17], or rivers [6]. Waterlogged or flooded soil can become an inhospitable environment, which excludes the majority of species, while in the remaining species, it triggers the expression of various traits and mechanisms that enable survival despite oxygen shortage in the root zone.…”

“…In addition, moving water masses as waves or current present a physical factor preventing successful colonization of certain communities [7,14]. Thus, when various factors shaping the plant communities are assessed [6] according to their importance, a hydrological regime often overrides all other environmental factors, also altering the pattern of regionality, which is generally accepted in biogeography [7].…”
