REAL CONDITION OF STENOENDEMIC SPECIES ARISTOLOCHIA MERXMUELLERI GREUTER ET E. MAYER 1985 AFTER NATO BOMBING IN KOSOVO WAR OF 1999
AbstractIn this paper is presented the real situation of steno-endemic species Aristolochia merxmuelleri Greuter & Mayer 1985. This species is found in Kosovo near Koznik Mountain, on the left side of Mirusha river (between Llapçeva and Mrasor) in lands with bushes, with serpentine base and at altitudes of 400 – 660 m. After the war in Kosovo (1999) there were some opinions that Aristolochia merxmuelleri had been threatened by the war in the region of Malisheva and Drenica (www.ecology.co.yu/ecology/ebiljke.htm). Our research represents the real situation of steno-endemic species Aristolochia merxmuelleri in the period from April 2000 to April 2003. At the same time here we represent the data which deny the claims of war effects on the species Aristolochia merxmuelleri as NATO ecocide.
