Morphostructural changes of Fritillaria meleagris L. individuals in different growing conditions

Abstract

Eva Andrik

The variation of 26 biomorphological parameters of Fritillaria meleagris individuals has been studied in different ecological and coenotical conditions, as well as under anthropogenic pressure (i.e. grazing, recreational pressure – trampling, picking flowers for bouquets, and flooding of habitats). Comparison of the F. meleagris individuals from the different habitats by the complex of morphological parameters confirmed its differentiation on forest and meadow ecoelements. Pasture and recreational pressure cause the development of smaller individuals with low vitality and teratological changes in flower. The most variable parameters in plants from different growth conditions are the next: leaf length and width, the width of inner tepals and plant height.
