During field trips made in 2007 and 2008 to the Bjelasica Mts, 318 bryophyte taxa (84 liverworts and 234 mosses) were collected. Twenty three taxa are reported here for the first time for Montenegro. Eight of the species recorded are redlisted in Europe. Source

During field investigations on Long Ulcinj Beach, Montenegrin coast, three taxa new to Montenegrin flora were collected: Colchicum cupanii Guss. subsp. glossophyllum (Heldr.) Rouy, Datura innoxia Mill. and Eclipta prostrata (L.) L. The first species is native to Europe, while the others are alien. Colchicum cupanii subsp. glossophyllum is an endemic of the Balkan Peninsula, with a distribution formerly restricted to Greece and Albania, so this new record extends its distribution to the north-west. The distribution of Eclipta prostrata in the Balkans is also enlarged by this new record for Montenegro, in a westerly direction.

This paper presents the first results of the comparative analysis of reading 11 trace elements (Pb, Cd, As, Hg, Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe, Co) in the mosses - Bryum argenteum Hedw. and Hypnum cupressiforme Hedw. that are collected in Podgorica (Montenegro). These researches showes 7 trace elements (Pb, Cd, Cr, Cu, Zn, Fe, Co, Mn) which have the highest concentration in the sample collected at the site located near the center of Podgorica, where a great frequency of traffic is present every day. By conducting of comparative analysis, it is concluded that there is a strong correlation between the concentration of trace elements in Bryum argenteum Hedw. and Hypnum cupressiforme Hedw. at study area. Also, this analysis showed that moss can accumulate substantial amounts of trace elements, which once again confirms the fact that these plants are good indicators of the environment pollution (biological indicators).

The species number, zoogeographical composition and vertical distribution of the ant fauna of the Mediterranean and the oro-Mediterranean part of Montenegro were investigated. A total number of 87 species and subspecies belonging to 28 genera and 4 subfamilies (Ponerinae, Myrmicinae, Dolichoderinae, Formicinae) are recorded. The species belong to 15 zoogeographical elements within the three main zoogeographical zones: Mixed and deciduous forest zone; Mediterranean zone; and Coniferous high mountainous forest zone. Overall species richness is inversely proportional with the altitude. The Mediterranean elements are dominant at the coastal region, and almost absent above 500 m altitude. The species richness of the mixed and deciduous forest zone was the highest at about 700 - 1100 m altitude. The coniferous element is scarce due to the sporadic true coniferous forests in the oro-Mediterranean zone of Montenegro. © 2011 NwjZ, Oradea, Romania. Source

The male of Crematogaster auberti savinae Zimmermann, 1934 is described for the first time and the worker of this subspecies is redescribed. Crematogaster sordidula mayri (Mayr, 1853) is synonymised with C. sordidula sordidula (Nylander, 1849). Geographical distribution of the genus Crematogaster in Montenegro (C. gordani Karaman, 2008, Crematogaster ionia Forel, 1911, C. montenigrinus Karaman, 2008, C. schmidti (Mayr, 1853a), C. auberti savinae Zimmermann, 1934, C. jehovae Forel, 1907 and C. sordidula (Nylander, 1849) is presented. Identification key based on workers is composed for all the species of Crematogaster distributed in Southern Europe. Source
