I wonder if Soldanellas make crossings

Soldanella sp. - ones I was really not sure what were they.

The thread should be conserved, it is fascinating. Soldanella species cross, but the crosses are not fully fertile.
The images probably belong to Soldanella carpatica. You should always check the glands on petioles. In Soldanella carpatica the glands are nearly sitting, in other species occurring there stalked. http://math.muni.cz/~niederle/solpage.html

Such wonderful, moody and dramatic images from the Tatra mountains, Chris, and beautifully composed shots of the plants you found on your way in their habitats.  Looking down on the frozen lake and up to the peaks with alpines nestling everywhere you give a real impression of the place that is fascinating and totally enjoyable, thanks.

seeing the recent posts gave me a chance to look at the entire thread AGAIN (as I have done a few times).

thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to share these with us (as your work is, i am sure) extremely demanding.

for those of us planning similar adventures in the future, could you let us know your favorite spot or hike with name of place etc....so we could conceivably find it on our own?

also i would love to know the name of your favorite accomodation and location when you go there.

and i also wonder if the thalictrum minus you posted is really that species?
