TAXONOMIC, CHOROLOGIC AND COENO-ECOLOGIC FEATURES OF THE ALCHEMILLA COLORATA SPECIES
Monographic research on the Alchemilla genus has been motivated by its complexity. Alchemilla species are mountainous, subalpine and alpine plants, perennial, small to medium. Their identification is usually difficult. The aim was to find new characters and criteria for the most precise delimitation of the different microspecies. Apart from the delimitation and description of species of this genus and in addition to morphological criteria, other criteria are required, such as ecology, chorology, phytogeography, karyology etc.Â Alchemilla colorata, analyzed in this paper, is a microspecies that has separated itself from the aggregate species Alchemilla hybrida (L.) Mill. In addition to taxonomy information, ceno-ecological characteristics and new data on the chorology of this taxon in the Romanian Carpathians are presented.
