Marshall A.J., Blanchon D.J., de Lange P.J., Wells S.J., Fryday A.M., Tang T. & Knight A. (2023): Megalaria crispisulcans, a new isidiate species of Megalaria (Ramalinaceae) from Aotearoa / New Zealand - Perspectives in Biodiversity, 1(1): 25–42

Megalaria crispisulcans A.J. Marshall, Blanchon & de Lange (Ramalinaceae) is described as a new species from populations in Te Ika a Māui / North Island of Aotearoa / New Zealand, and on Rēkohu / Wharekauri / Chatham Island, Aotearoa / New Zealand. The new species is morphologically closely allied to Megalaria orokonuiana, from which it is distinguished by its nrDNA ITS sequence and morphologically by the usual presence of a white prothallus, bright green (when fresh) isidiate thallus and … EndNote PDF Read more...

Li Q., Wu C., He J. & Zhang B. (2023): Unraveling the microbiotas and key genetic contexts identified on stone heritage using illumina and nanopore sequencing platforms - International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation, 185: 105688 [12 p.]

The application of metagenomics uncovering stone-dwelling microbiotas and its functional capabilities are of great significance for early warning of stone monuments deterioration and screening of antimicrobial agents. Here, by harnessing the combination of Nanopore and Illumina sequencing, we investigated the microbial community compositions and potential risks resulting from elemental nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) metabolism and environmental resistomes. Taxonomic profiling showed that lichenized … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Furmanek Ł. & Seaward M.R.D. (2023): Anti-yeast potential of lichen-extracted substances – An analytical review - South African Journal of Botany, 161: 720–779

A meta-analysis of literature data with statistical analysis concerning the effect of lichen substances on the inhibition of 10 yeast species (Candida albicans, C. dubliniensis, C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. sake, C. tropicalis, Colacogloea diffluens, Cryptococcus neoformans, Issatchenkia orientalis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is provided. Lichen extracts were obtained using 16 solvents from 100 epiphytic, 51 epigeic and 37 epilithic lichen species. The most studied lichen taxa at the generic … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Favero-Longo S.E., Matteucci E., Voyron S., Iacomussi P. & Ruggiero M.G. (2023): Lithobiontic recolonization following cleaning and preservative treatments on the rock engravings of Valle Camonica, Italy: A 54-months monitoring - Science of The Total Environment, 901: 165885 [18 p.]

Both the indirect control of microclimate conditions and the direct application of preservative products to contrast stone bioreceptivity may contribute to limit lithobiontic recolonization of cultural heritage surfaces after cleaning interventions. However, the priority deserved by these different preventive approaches has still been poorly evaluated, particularly in outdoor environments. This work dealt with the engraved sandstone surfaces of the National Park of Rock Engravings of Naquane (Italy, … URL EndNote Read more...

Guida G., Nicosia A., Settanni L. & Ferro V. (2023): A review on effects of biological soil crusts on hydrological processes - Earth-Science Reviews, 243: 104516 [24 p.]

Biological soil crusts (BSCs) are complex consortia of microorganisms able to modify soil physical, chemical, and hydrological characteristics and influence soil erosion resistance. Given their importance, this paper analyses the current knowledge about BSCs reporting the findings of 163 papers about different BSC aspects published from 1990 to 2023. At first, a review of the BSC main detection methods (visual inspection, remote sensing, and morphological characterization) is presented as they represent … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Fiorentino J. (2017): A revised appraisal of scientific names used in the 1915 list of lichens of the Maltese islands by S. Sommier and A. Caruana Gatto - Xjenza Online - Journal of the Malta Chamber of Scientists, 5: 137–147

In 1915, Stefano Sommier and Alfredo Caruano Gatto published a list of lichens from the Maltese Islands. This author published an appraisal of the scientific names used in their list in 2002. The present work aims to replace the previous work given the important changes which have occurred in lichen nomenclature. Keywords: Maltese Islands, lichens, checklist, endemism.

Zur Ökologie von Flechten und Moosen. Wir sind in unseren Breiten gewohnt, dass sich die Vegetation im Laufe der Jahreszeiten verändert. Die Laubwälder verfärben sich im Herbst und werfen ihr Laub ab, die Kräuter ziehen ein, Pilze erscheinen und vergehen. Selbst in den immergrünen Nadelwäldern erkennt der Wanderer den jahreszeitlichen Wechsel. Flechten und Moose jedoch machen diesen Wandel nicht mit. Ob sie den Boden überziehen, Felsen besiedeln oder Baumstämme manschetten-gleich umhüllen, … EndNote PDF Read more...

Adams J.N., Escalona M., Marimuthu M.P.A., Fairbairn C.W., Beraut E., Seligmann W., Nguyen O., Chumchim N. & Stajich J.E. (2023): The reference genome assembly of the bright cobblestone lichen, Acarospora socialis - Journal of Heredity, 2023: esad052

Acarospora socialis, the bright cobblestone lichen, is commonly found in southwestern North America. This charismatic yellow lichen is a species of key ecological significance as it is often a pioneer species in new environments. Despite their ecological importance virtually no research has been conducted on the genomics of A. socialis. To address this, we used long-read sequencing to generate the first high-quality draft genome of A. socialis. Lichen thallus tissue was collected from Pinkham Canyon … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Favero-Longo S.E., Worland M.R., Convey P., Lewis Smith R.I., Piervittori R., Guglielmin M. & Cannone N. (2012): Primary succession of lichen and bryophyte communities following glacial recession on Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, Maritime Antarctic - Antarctic Science, 24(4): 323-336

A directional primary succession with moderate species replacement was quantitatively characterized on Signy Island in zones of a glacial valley corresponding to their age since deglaciation. A continuous increase in diversity and abundance of lichens and bryophytes was observed between terrains deglaciated in the late 20th century, to areas where deglaciation followed the Little Ice Age, and others thought to be ice-free since soon after the Last Glacial Maximum. Classification (UPGMA) and ordination … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Lõhmus P., Degtjarenko P., Lotman S., Copoț O., Rosenvald R. & Lõhmus A. (2023): “Ready! Set! Lichen!”: a citizen-science campaign for lichens, against the odds of success - Biodiversity and Conservation, 2023: 1–13

Citizen science has successfully contributed lichen records to air pollution assessments and for detecting biodiversity hotspots, while its potential to survey broad lichen distributions and trends in natural ecosystems is less clear. The main issue is whether non-professional observers would be willing to visit remote areas to record inconspicuous organisms. We launched a nationwide citizen science campaign “Ready! Set! Lichen!” in Estonia (Northern Europe) that focused on collecting digital … URL EndNote PDF Read more...
