Ivanets V., Yevchun H., Miryuta N., Veselsky M., Salganskiy O., Konishchuk V., Kozeretska I., Dykyi E. & Parnikoza I. (2022): Skua and plant dispersal: lessons from the Argentine Islands – Kyiv Peninsula region in the maritime Antarctic - Nordic Journal of Botany, 2022: e03326 [12 p.]

Birds are one of the most likely dispersal vectors for plants in Antarctica. We studied the nesting behavior of south polar skua Catharacta maccormicki and brown skua Catharacta antarctica lonnbergi to assess their potential role in ornithochory in the Argentine Islands – Kyiv Peninsula region. Nest samples were collected during 2009– 2020 years in the Argentine Islands – Kyiv Peninsula region including all islands and coasts of the Graham Land from the Lemaire Channel to the islands of … URL EndNote Read more...

Song H., Kim K.-T., Park S.-Y., Lee G.-W., Choi J., Jeon J., Cheong K., Choi G., Hur J.-S. & Lee Y.-H. (2022): A comparative genomic analysis of lichen‑forming fungi reveals new insights into fungal lifestyles - Scientific Reports, 12: 10724 [14 p.]

Lichen-forming fungi are mutualistic symbionts of green algae or cyanobacteria. We report the comparative analysis of six genomes of lichen-forming fungi in classes Eurotiomycetes and Lecanoromycetes to identify genomic information related to their symbiotic lifestyle. The lichenforming fungi exhibited genome reduction via the loss of dispensable genes encoding plant-cell-walldegrading enzymes, sugar transporters, and transcription factors. The loss of these genes reflects the symbiotic biology … URL EndNote Read more...

Favero-Longo S.E., Tabasso M.L., Brigadeci F., Capua M.-C., Morelli A., Pastorello P., Sohrabi M., Chaverdi A.A. & Callieri P. (2022): A first assessment of the biocidal efficacy of plant essential oils against lichens on stone cultural heritage, and the importance of evaluating suitable application protocols - Journal of Cultural Heritage, 55: 68–77

Plant essential oils (EOs) are increasingly considered as potential tools to control biodeterioration of stone cultural heritage. The application of EOs was indeed shown to devitalize photo- and hetero-trophic constituents of lithobiontic biofilms, but their effects on lichens, which are other remarkable biodeteriogens of stone surfaces, is still unexplored. In this work, we analyzed the biocidal efficacy of a commercial mixture of essential oils (Syzygium aromaticum, Thymbra capitata, Cinnamomum … URL EndNote Read more...

Zulfiqar R., Habib K., Mayrhofer H. & Khalid A.N. (2022): A new species of the genus Rinodina (lichenized Ascomycota, Physciaceae) from Pakistan - Bryologist, 125(3): 418–423

Specimens of a species belonging to the genus Rinodina were collected during a lichen diversity study in district Kohistan, Pakistan. Both morphology and ITS sequence data confirm its position within the genus Rinodina and suggest it is distinct from other known species of the genus. The new taxon, described here as Rinodina iqbalii, is characterized by the absence of a prothallus; small apothecial discs up to 0.6 mm in diameter; and small, Milvina–type ascospores, (12.0–)16.0–18.5(–20.0) … URL EndNote Read more...

Cera A., Mendes J., Cortada À. & Gómez-Bolea A. (2022): Cover of Ramalina species as an indicator of habitat quality in threatened coastal woodlands - Bryologist, 125(3): 424–432

Coastal forests in the Mediterranean area are threatened habitats due to intense human influence. In the context of global change, a rapid tool is needed for the evaluation of habitat quality in woodlands by calculating lichen cover on twigs rather than weight biomass. We selected epiphytic Ramalina species as indicators of habitat quality and evaluated them in threatened woodlands dominated by Olea europea var. sylvestris on the island of Menorca, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Mediterranean … URL EndNote Read more...

Varrica D., Lo Medico F. & Alaimo M.G. (2022): Air quality assessment by the determination of trace elements in lichens (Xanthoria calcicola) in an industrial area (Sicily, Italy) - International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 19(15): 9746 [15 p.]

This study provides data on variation in the content of metals and metalloids measured in the lichens (Xanthoria calcicola Oxner) collected in the Syracusan petrochemical complex (Sicily, Italy) which is considered one of the largest in Europe. Concentrations of eighteen trace elements measured in the lichens that were collected from 49 different points were analyzed using an inductively coupled plasma (ICP-MS) device. The concentrations of the typical elements of industrial emissions (As, Cr, Ni, … URL EndNote Read more...

Ai M., Li L.J., Worthy F.R., Yin A.C., Zhong Q.Y., Wang S.Q., Wang L.S. & Wang X.Y. (2022): Taxonomy of Buellia epigaea-group (Caliciales, Caliciaceae), revealing a new species and two new records from China - MycoKeys, 92: 45–62

During the Second Tibetan Plateau Scientific Expedition and Research Program, we discovered that white terricolous lichenized fungal species of Buellia De Not. were widely distributed across the Tibetan Plateau. After examining their morphology, chemistry and phylogeny, we describe Buellia alpina Xin Y. Wang & Li S. Wang, sp. nov. as new to science. It is present in alpine meadows, and is characterized by its effigurate thallus, distinct linear marginal lobes, cover of thick white pruina … URL EndNote Read more...

We used molecular data to address species delimitation in a species complex of the parmelioid genus Canoparmelia and compare the pharmacological properties of the two clades identified. We used HPLC_DAD_MS chromatography to identify and quantify the secondary substances and used a concatenated data set of three ribosomal markers to infer phylogenetic relationships. Some historical herbarium specimens were also examined. We found two groups that showed distinct pharmacological properties. The phylogenetic … URL EndNote Read more...

Barreno E., Muggia L., Chiva S., Molins A., Bordenave C., García-Breijo F. & Moya P. (2022): Trebouxia lynnae sp. nov. (former Trebouxia sp. TR9): Biology and biogeography of an epitome lichen symbiotic microalga - Biology, 11(8): 1196 [19 p.]

Two microalgal species, Trebouxia jamesii and Trebouxia sp. TR9, were detected as the main photobionts coexisting in the thalli of the lichen Ramalina farinacea. Trebouxia sp. TR9 emerged as a new taxon in lichen symbioses and was successfully isolated and propagated in in vitro culture and thoroughly investigated. Several years of research have confirmed the taxon Trebouxia sp. TR9 to be a model/reference organism for studying mycobiont–photobiont association patterns in lichen symbioses.

Koelemeijer I.A., Ehrlén J., Jönsson M., De Frenne P., Berg P., Andersson J., Weibull H. & Hylander K. (2022): Interactive efects of drought and edge exposure on old‑growth forest understory species - Landscape Ecology, 37: 1839–1853

Context: Both climatic extremes and land-use change constitute severe threats to biodiversity, but their interactive effects remain poorly understood. In forest ecosystems, the effects of climatic extremes can be exacerbated at forest edges. Objectives: We explored the hypothesis that an extreme summer drought reduced the richness and coverage of old-growth forest species, particularly in forest patches with high edge exposure. Methods: Using a high-resolution spatially explicit precipitation … URL EndNote Read more...
