Pyrus Sosnovskyi - Version 2014.3 [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
[Excerpt] This species is listed as Endangered in view of its extent of occurrence (EOO) estimated to be c. 1900 km2, its area of occupancy (AOO) estimated to be 76 km2, its~existence at three or four locations and an inferred and projected continuing decline in EOO, AOO and the area, extent and quality of habitat because of the negative influence of selective logging and wood extraction. [::Common Name(s)] [::]English - Sosnovsky's Pear [::Taxonomic Notes] Pyrus sosnovskyi Fed. was described by A. A. Fedorov in 1938 from Erevan floristic district of Armenia. Leaves are pointed, minute 2-3(4) х 1-1.5(2) cm, bright light-green, not nigrescent when drying. Friuts small, 1.5-2.0 сm in diameter. [::Range Description] This species is endemic to Armenia where it is found in the~Gegam,~Yerevan,~Daralegis and~Zangezur floristic regions. [::Countries] Native:Armenia (Armenia) [::Population] It is rare and occurs in five subpopulations, which represent three to four locations. [::Habitat and Ecology] It grows in arid open woodlands, as well as broad-leaved forests, between 1000-2000 m asl. [::Major Threat(s)] The major threats are human induced habitat loss and degradation caused by selective logging and harvesting, in particular wood extraction for local use.
