Perlmutter G.B., Miranda-Gonzáles R. & Bungartz F. (2023): Placement of Arthonia rubrocincta in Coniocarpon (lichenized Ascomycota: Arthoniaceae), with an extended range for the species in southeastern North America and the Caribbean - Phytotaxa, 589(3): 278–282

Arthonia rubrocincta morphologically and anatomically fits the generic concept of Coniocarpon and is here transferred to the latter genus as Coniocarpon rubrocinctum. Specimens from southeastern United States and Bahamas were studied and the range of the species is found to extend north into North Carolina, USA and southeast to the Bahamas. Thatch palm (Coccothrinax argentata) is reported as a new phorophyte. An emended description based on examined material is presented for the species. Keywords: … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Syed Salleh S.N.A. & Abas A. (2023): Monitoring heavy metal concentrations using transplanted lichen in a tourism city of Malaysia - Sustainability, 15(7): 5885 [12 p.]

Heavy metals are major pollutants in tourist cities due to transportation and urbanization. This study aimed to assess heavy metal concentrations using transplanted lichen in tourist cities. The project was conducted in Malacca, Malaysia, using transplanted Usnea misaminensis lichen at ten sampling stations. After one month, these lichen samples were collected and heavy metal analysis was carried out in a lab using ICP-MS. Other factors, such as the number of vehicles, temperature, relative humidity, … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Si H., Wang Y., Liu Y., Li S., Bose T. & Chang R. (2023): Fungal diversity associated with thirty-eight lichen species revealed a new genus of endolichenic fungi, Intumescentia gen. nov. (Teratosphaeriaceae) - Journal of Fungi, 9(4): 423 [18 p.]

Fungi from the Teratosphaeriaceae (Mycosphaerellales; Dothideomycetes; Ascomycota) have a wide range of lifestyles. Among these are a few species that are endolichenic fungi. However, the known diversity of endolichenic fungi from Teratosphaeriaceae is far less understood compared to other lineages of Ascomycota. We conducted five surveys from 2020 to 2021 in Yunnan Province of China, to explore the biodiversity of endolichenic fungi. During these surveys, we collected multiple samples of 38 lichen … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

dos Santos L.A., Aptroot A., Lücking R. & Cáceres M.E.S. (2023): Lecanora s.lat. (Ascomycota, Lecanoraceae) in Brazil: DNA barcoding coupled with phenotype characters reveals numerous novel species - Journal of Fungi, 9(4): 415 [28 p.]

We sequenced over 200 recent specimens of Lecanora s.lat. from Brazil, delimiting 28 species in our material. Many seem to represent undescribed species, some of which being morphologically and chemically similar to each other or to already described species. Here, we present a phylogenetic analysis based on ITS, including our specimens and GenBank data. We describe nine new species. The purpose of the paper is to illustrate the diversity of the genus in Brazil, not to focus on segregate genera. … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Veas-Mattheos K., Almendras K., Pezoa M., Muster C. & Orlando J. (2023): High Andean steppes of southern Chile contain little-explored Peltigera lichen symbionts - Journal of Fungi, 9(3): 372 [18 p.]

Peltigera lichens can colonize extreme habitats, such as high-elevation ecosystems, but their biodiversity is still largely unknown in these environments, especially in the southern hemi- sphere. We assessed the genetic diversity of mycobionts and cyanobionts of 60 Peltigera lichens collected in three high Andean steppes of southern Chile using LSU, β-tubulin, COR3 and ITS loci for mycobionts, and SSU and rbcLX loci for cyanobionts. We obtained 240 sequences for the different mycobiont markers and … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

[in Catalan, with an illustrative photodocumentation] La recopilació de les dades disponibles sobre la biota liquènica de la comarca de l’Horta Sud ha permés l’elaboració d’un catàleg preliminar amb 66 fongs liquenitzats. Tot i tractar-se d’un territori fortament antropitzat, amb grans extensions ocupades per àrees urbanes i industrials i per infraestructures viàries o dedicades a l’agricultura, alberga algunes espècies poc citades a la Comunitat Valenciana, com ara Enchylium … EndNote Read more...

Marginson H., MacMillan G.A., Grant E., Gérin-Lajoie J. & Amyot M. (2023): Rare earth element bioaccumulation and cerium anomalies in biota from the Eastern Canadian subarctic (Nunavik) - Science of The Total Environment, 879: 163024 [12 p.]

Recent increases in the demand for rare earth elements (REE) have contributed to various countries' interest in exploration of their REE deposits, including within Canada. Current limited knowledge of REE distribution in undisturbed subarctic environments and their bioaccumulation within northern species is addressed through a collaborative community-based environmental monitoring program in Nunavik (Quebec, Canada). This study provides background REE values (lanthanides + yttrium) and investigates … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Ikeda M.A., Nakamura H. & Sawada K. (2023): Aliphatic hydrocarbons in the lichen class Lecanoromycetes and their potential use as chemotaxonomic indicators and biomarkers - Organic Geochemistry, 179: 104588 [11 p.]

Lichens are found in a wide range of terrestrial habitats and have important roles in terrestrial ecosystems. However, because lichens are easily decomposed and are rarely preserved as fossils, their paleoenvironmental ecology and evolutionary history remain a mystery. We performed lipid analyses on 29 lichen samples belonging to Lecanoromycetes, the largest class of lichens, from several locations in Japan, to determine their potential for use as taxonomic tools and biomarkers. We found that the … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

(2023): Microbial biomineralization under extreme conditions: Case study of basaltic rocks, Tolbachik Volcano, Kamchatka, Russia - Catena, 226: 107048 [14 p.]

Microorganisms (bacteria, fungi and others) are considered to be the pioneers of the settlement under extreme conditions and take an active part in biomineralization and soil formation. We studied biofilms and for the first time identified the presence of microbial biomineralization in extreme conditions of Tolbachik Volcano area, Russia. Rock samples with lichen / cyanobacteria biofilms were studied by a complex of methods (optical and scanning electron microscopy, powder X-ray diffraction and energy-dispersive … URL EndNote Read more...
