IRYNA BEDNARSKA, GINTARAS BRAZAUSKAS

Abstract


Festuca galiciensis, a new endemic species from Western Ukraine is described. Its ecology, distribution, morphology and leaf anatomy are discussed. The taxonomic relationship of the new species with F. rupicola, with which it grows in mixed populations, and its delimitation with respect to other species of the F. valesiaca group, are also discussed.


Keywords
