Bryophytes of the Parque Nacional da Serra da Bocaina, São Paulo State, Brazil
Keywords:bryophytes, Atlantic Forest, floristic
The Serra da Bocaina National Park is located between the States of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, being the only PARNA in the State of São Paulo. We found 485 species of bryophytes, with Lejeuneaceae as the richest family with 93 species. Bryaceae presented the largest number of moss species, with 23 species. Forty seven species are new records for the São Paulo State. Among all the collected species, 43% are restricted to the Atlantic Forest, 31% are Brazilian endemic and 155 are considered rare in Brazil. The species number represents the importance of this Park to the preservation of the bryophyte species in Brazil and for future work in Serra da Bocaina.
