Abstract: Peat mosses are a key functional group in peatlands, driving biogeochemical cycles, habitat development and changes in species composition. They are generally intolerant of calcium and magnesium bicarbonate, but some species are adapted to mineral-rich fens. A previous study found a coincidence between genetic variation and the ability to tolerate high pH/calcium levels in Sphagnum warnstorfii. Here we compare its microsatellite variation with that of two rarer calcium-tolerant species (Sphagnum subnitens, S. … Show more

“…Enhanced pH and calcium concentrations may be the reason why Sphagno contorti-Primuletum exiguae, especially its subassociation with S. warnstorfii, may develop from the Narthecion scardici fens, but the values measured in the Bulgarian vegetation plots (Figure 4) are quite low, lower than optimum values for calciumtolerant peat mosses (S. warnstorfii, S. teres, S. contortum) in other regions (Mikulášková et al 2015;Plesková et al 2016). Mikulášková et al (2015Mikulášková et al ( , 2017 studied Bulgarian populations of S. warnstorfii genetically, along with other populations worldwide, and found slight yet apparent pH-and magnesium-related genetic variation within S. warnstorfii, with Bulgarian populations at the acidic and magnesium-poor end of the cline. Another calciumtolerant peat moss species, S. contortum, is more frequent in Bulgarian rich fens including the high-mountain ones.…”
