Abstract The fifth part of the series on the distributions of vascular plants in the Czech Republic includes grid maps of 106 taxa of the genera Arnica, Carduus, Cicuta, Coleanthus, Comarum, Dactylorhiza, Digitaria, Gagea, Gypsophila, Hieracium, Hydrocotyle, Leersia, Myosurus, Oenanthe, Oreopteris, Paris, Phalaris, Phegopteris, Pilosella, Polystichum, Portulaca, Pulicaria, Salicornia, Saxifraga, Suaeda, Thalictrum, Thelypteris, Tripolium, Utricularia, Veronica and Xeranthemum. These maps were produced by taxonomic experts based on herbarium specimens, literature and field records. Almost two-thirds of the mapped taxa are on the national Red List. These include endangered plants of rather dry habitats such as Gypsophila paniculata, Thalictrum foetidum, Veronica austriaca and Xeranthemum annuum as well as species of various sorts of wetlands such as Cicuta virosa and species of the genera Dactylorhiza and Utricularia, or fens and intermittently wet meadows including Oenanthe fistulosa, Thalictrum flavum and Th. simplex subsp. galioides. Particularly endangered are ecological specialists; for example, many species of saline habitats such as Salicornia perennans and Suaeda prostrata, both confined to saline habitats, are now extirpated from this country. In contrast, Saxifraga tridactylites, previously a rare species found mainly on base-rich rock outcrops, has become more abundant by spreading along railways during the last two decades. Maps based solely or mainly on herbarium records revised by experts are provided for taxonomically critical groups, particularly those of the genus Pilosella. Alien species mapped in this paper include both archaeophytes and neophytes, with various modes of introduction. For example, Carduus tenuiflorus has been introduced with wool, Digitaria ciliaris with cotton, Gypsophila perfoliata with iron ore from Ukraine, while the ornamentals G. elegans and G. scorzonerifolia escaped from cultivation. The halophytic Suaeda salsa is recorded as a new alien species for this country's flora; it has recently colonized motorway verges of which the salinity of the soil was increased by the application of de-icing salts. Two archaeophyte species, Digitaria ischaemum and Portulaca oleracea, are now classified as invasive. Spatial distributions and often also temporal dynamics of individual taxa are shown in maps and documented by records included in the Pladias database and available in electronic appendices. The maps are accompanied by comments, which include additional information on the distribution, habitats, taxonomy and biology of the taxa.

Funding Text We are grateful to all who made this study possible and helped us in any way. Field botanists collected distribution records and plant specimens for herbaria, which served as a basis for the distribution maps. Curators of the herbaria visited allowed us to study their specimens and collect records. Administrators of the integrated databases, particularly Jan Stepanek, Milan Chytry, Dana Michalcova and Karel Chobot as representatives of the major ones, agreed to share plant distribution records. Pavel Drevojan, Petr Kocian, Adam Kantor and Pavel Kur helped with the preparation of certain maps. The South-Bohemian branch of the Czech Botanical Society kindly provided records from the regional floristic database of Vaclav Chan. Regional collaborators, particularly Radim Paulic, Pavel Drevojan, Jan Dolezal, Petr Koutecky, Ludek Cech, Petr Kocian, Milan Kotilinek, David Hlisnikovsky, Petr Lepsi, Tomas Svacina, Zdenka Hroudova, Karel Fajmon, Zuzana Mruzikova, Rudolf Hlavacek, Jaroslav Rydlo, Jana Janakova, Jan Kosnar, Karel Boublik, David Pubal, Vit Grulich, Martin Dancak, Pavel Lustyk, Pavel Zdvorak, Pavel Kur, Josef Komarek, Leo Bures, Jiri Brabec, Hana Galuskova, Petr Petrik, Vaclav Dvorak, Lenka Pivonkova, Jan Blahovec, Jiri Juricka, Jaroslav Zamecnik, Radomir Nemec and Zdenka Rozbrojova commented on early versions of maps and/or provided additional records for their areas. Petra Bidmanova (nee Strnadova), Josef Bruna, Petr Filippov, Hana Galuskova, Ondrej Hornych, Klara Kabatova, Anna Kladivova, Adam Knotek, Marketa Kollarovicova, Kristyna Marvanova, Ludmila Mikovcova, Helena Moltasova, Sona Novotna (nee Dvorakova), Helena Prokesova, Lucie Rejchrtova, Ludmila Roithova, Jan Rys, Nina Slovakova, Petra Silarova, Lucie Smejdova, Petra Stepankova, Vaclav Sulc and Kristyna Vazacova georeferenced distribution records, computerized data, helped with the preparation of maps or provided other technical assistance. Helmut Freitag kindly examined and identified the first specimens of Suaeda salsa. Lukas Cihal, Jiri Hadinec, Hana Houzarova, Jana Jelinkova, Milan Marek, Lenka Safarova and Otakar Sida helped with the deciphering of old herbarium labels or identification of localities. Programmers Petr Novotny and Martin Rohn produced the Pladias database and an internet-accessible mapping interface. An anonymous reviewer carefully read the manuscript and suggested numerous valuable improvements. Tony Dixon proofread the English text.
