Re: [BRYONET] Sphagna-liverworts

Dear Line,

there is not much on this topic but maybe the references below will be
useful to you, even if they are not all dealing with Cladopodiella or
Gymnocolea. You might also consider checking papers by R.H. Økland. He
worked on the strategy of liverworts in bogs, possibly published in
Nordic Journal of Botany? In my own paper I could show that with
increasing Sphagnum abundance liverworts decline. However, I didn't
study the process itself.

Swedish mire hepatics. Journal of Bryology 19:409-424.

species in southern Finnish raised bogs. Annales Botanici Fennici 15:15-26.
