Abstract in another language

We analysed a stand of Pannonian subcontinental fescue sandy grassland in the Deliblato Sands (Deliblatska peščara;South-Eastern Banat, Vojvodina, Serbia) with nested-plot sampling on areas from 0.0001 to 100 m2 (= “EDGG biodiversityplot”). The stand belongs to the class Koelerio-Corynephoretea, order Sedo acris-Festucetalia (syntax. syn.: Festucetalia vagi-natae) and alliance Festucion vaginatae. Mean species richness values (e.g. 27.5 species on 10 m2, with 25.0 vascular plantsand 2.5 non-vascular plants) were low (only about 25%) compared maximum values known from other European dry grasslandsat the different scales, but they matched well data of base-rich sandy grasslands in other parts of Europe. Only the diversitycontribution of bryophytes and lichens (less than 10% on 10 m2) was unusually low for that type of vegetation. The overall spe-cies-area relationship had a z-value of 0.177, which indicates low species turnover (low beta-diversity). As in other studies thespecific z-value of vascular plants was much higher than that of non-vascular plants. This paper sheds a first light on scale- andtaxon-dependent phytodiversity patterns in Serbian grasslands and calls for more extensive follow-up studies.
