dc.description.abstractThe bryoflora was determined on roadside banks along the transect Mayagüez-Maricao that begins in the municipality of Mayagüez at an elevation of 15 m on highway 108 and culminates in the municipality of Maricao on highway 120 South at an elevation of 472 m. During the months of February to April of 2003 an ecological inventory was carried out at five sampling stations of 10 m2 each, in which 3 m2 were chosen at random to collect the bryophyte species and to determine cover. In the month of May of the same year a floristic inventory was carried out at 13 sampling stations along the studied transect. Analysis of similarity among the stations, variance, distribution and association among species were analyzed. Dicranella hilariana, Fossombronia brasiliensis, Lejeunea cladogyna and Philonotis uncinata were the most frequent species and those with wide distribution on the highway banks.en_US

Durante los meses de febrero a abril de 2003 se realizó un inventario ecológico en cinco estaciones de muestreo de 10 m2 cada una; se escogieron al azar 3 m2 para colectar las especies de briofitos y determinar cobertura. En el mes de mayo del mismo año se llevó acabo un inventario florístico en 13 estaciones de muestreo en el transecto estudiado. Se realizaron análisis de similitud entre las estaciones, varianza, distribución y asociación entre especies. Dicranella hilariana, Fossombronia brasiliensis, Lejeunea cladogyna y Philonotis uncinata fueron las especies más frecuentes y con amplia distribución sobre los taludes de carretera.en_US
