Abstract: Soil moisture and a legacy of prehistoric human activities have contributed to the extraordinary plant species diversity of grasslands in the White Carpathians. -Preslia 92: The factors that determine the unique species richness and composition of some temperate grasslands are poorly known. Uniqueness of the extraordinarily species-rich grasslands in the White Carpathian mountain range (Czech Republic, Slovakia), with many disjunct occurrences of species, have been previously attributed to intermittently wet … Show more

“…In addition, the transformed territory has a pronounced mosaic character, which contributes to the creation of local plant communities that are different from the neighbouring ones: the in- habitants of semi-dry and moist meadows, salt marshes and wetlands are adjacent at close distances. A similar local coexistence of several ecological groups of species was noted on undisturbed grasslands (Hettenbergerová et al, 2013;Fajmonová et al, 2020) and explained by the variable humidity conditions, which are accepted by many species, resulting in a species-rich community with a unique species composition. Based on the results of our studies, we built a proposed series of herbaceous plant synusia that could form on the territory where permanent subsidence of the surface and flooding occurred over a long period (Fig.…”

“…However, this relationship appears to be driven partly by the huge sample size as well as other unknown outliers; thus, more anthropogenic variables may be required to clarify and validate the relationship. Though our data indicate a negative effect of human activities on the distribution of genetic diversity in the LRGR, some recent studies have alluded to the positive impact of ancient anthropogenic forces on biodiversity (e.g., Novák et al, 2019 ; Fajmonová et al, 2020 ), a trend that may also be true for genetic diversity, but more data are needed to confirm this relationship. A better understanding of the role of contemporary or recent human activities on the genetic structure of plant communities in the region would require characterization of habitats using more direct approaches.…”

“…Soil properties such as texture directly influence the amount of water available to plants (Fajmonová et al, 2020; Rusanov et al, 2012). In arid regions, fine‐grained (silty or clayey) soils tend to be dry because water mostly runs off and evaporates before soaking into the soil (Walter, 1974).…”
