Özet

The epiphytic bryophyte flora and vegetation of the Zonguldak-Gobu village was investigated in this study. Between the years 2012-2013, as a result of identification of the 236 epiphytic bryophyte samples collected from the trunks of trees; total of 29 taxa (8 liverworts, 21 mosses) belonging to 23 genera and 17 families were determined. As a result of evaluation of the 33 releves taken from the trunk of trees by Braun-Blanquet method, the Plagiothecietum neglecti association, Pylaisietum polyanthae typicum and Pylaisietum polyanthae -lophocoleetosum heterophyllae subassociation are identified. From these syntaxa, Plagiothecietum neglecti has been reported for the first time in Turkey, in addition Pylaisietum polyanthae -lophocoleetosum heterophyllae subassociation is new for knowledge. The life forms and life strategies of syntaxa examined in terms of ecological and floristic have been analyzed. Mat and weft are dominant of the life forms while Ag is dominant of the life strategies. In addition, the most taxa of floristic list are determimed mesophytic, sciophyt and acidic as a character.
