Hieracium sect. Hieracium in the province of Östergötland, Sweden

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


77 species of Hieraciurn sect Hieracium known from the province of Ostergotland are treated with standardized descriptions, determination keys and illustrations. Sixty-one species are indigenous, two of these are endemic, and 16 have been introduced accidentally with grass-seed from central Europe. Compared to other south-Swedish provinces, the Hieracium-flora of Ostergotland is very rich in species but relatively badly known. Most probably, several new species are yet to be found and the distributions of most species remain to investigate.
