Kantelinen A., Svensson M., Malíček J., Vondrák J., Thor G., Palice Z., Svoboda S. & Myllys L. (2024): A phylogenetic study of Micarea melaeniza and similar-looking species (Pilocarpaceae) unveils hidden diversity and clarifies species boundaries and reproduction modes - MycoKeys, 106: 327–353

Micarea (Ascomycota, Pilocarpaceae) is a large cosmopolitan genus of crustose lichens. We investigated molecular systematics and taxonomy of the poorly known Micarea melaeniza group focussing on M. melaeniza, M. nigella and M. osloensis. A total of 54 new sequences were generated and using Bayesian and maximum likelihood analysis of two markers (nuITS and mtSSU), we discovered two previously unrecognized phylogenetic lineages, one of which is described here as Micarea eurasiatica Kantelinen … URL EndNote PDF Read more... 

Gillingham D., Hodge J., Skeard F., Hanel C., Wiersma Y.F., Arsenault A., Driscoll K.E., Paquette H.A. & McMullin R.T. (2024): Mi'kmaw knowledge helps uncover a new area of interesting lichen biodiversity on the island of Newfoundland (Ktaqmkuk) - Bryologist, 127(2): 249–268

The island of Newfoundland, Canada, is known as an area with high lichen species richness; however, most of this diversity is known from coastal regions where the ocean creates a maritime climate. The central part of the island has a more continental climate and is also the part of the province with the highest levels of industrial forest harvest and mining activities. For these reasons, it has not been an area considered to have high lichen diversity. Here, we show how local Mi’kmaw knowledge … URL EndNote PDF Read more... 

Kaminsky L. & Smith M.E. (2024): Assessment of macrolichen diversity at Ordway-Swisher Biological Station in northern Florida contributes to the scientific mission of NEON - Castanea, 89(1): 1–11

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is gathering select ecological and taxonomic data across 81 sites in the United States and Puerto Rico. Lichens are one of the organismal groups that NEON has not yet assessed across these sites. Here we sampled lichens at Ordway-Swisher Biological Station (OSBS), a NEON site in north central Florida, to provide a baseline survey of the commonly encountered macrolichens (foliose, fruticose, and squamulose lichens). Macrolichens represent … URL EndNote Read more... 

Konoreva L.A., Chesnokov S.V. & Bolshakov S.Y. (2024): Inventory of lichenised and lichenicolous fungi of Nordaustlandet, Svalbard - Polar Biology, 47: 639–649

Nordaustlandet is the northernmost and one of the most inaccessible regions of Svalbard. The lichens of the Nordaustlandet were studied most actively from the mid-nineteenth century to the 40 s of the twentieth century. It was during this period that significant collections of lichens were collected, which still form the basis for some taxonomic studies. Thanks to large-scale research conducted by the Avrorin Polar-Alpine Botanical Garden-Institute of the Kola Science Center of the Russian Academy … URL EndNote PDF Read more... 

Gauslaa Y. (2024): Changes in epiphytic lichen diversity along the urban-rural gradient before, during, and after the acid rain period - Biodiversity and Conservation, 33: 2247–2263

Spatial variations in epiphytic macrolichen richness in the city of Oslo were assessed annually 1973–2019. These observations were contrasted with earlier published data from 1930 to examine how long-term changes in species richness of functional groups track different stages of air pollution regimes. From 1930 to the 1970’s, representing the early surge and late peak of S-deposition, the lichen-deficient urban area remained largely unaltered. Epiphytic macrolichen richness in the surrounding … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Blázquez M., Ortiz-Álvarez R., Gasulla F., Pérez-Vargas I. & Pérez-Ortega S. (2024): Bacterial communities associated with an island radiation of lichen-forming fungi - PLoS ONE, 19(3): e0298599 [24 p.]

Evolutionary radiations are one of the most striking processes biologists have studied in islands. A radiation is often sparked by the appearance of ecological opportunity, which can originate in processes like trophic niche segregation or the evolution of key innovations. Another recently proposed mechanism is facilitation mediated by the bacterial communities associated with the radiating species. Here we explore the role of the bacterial communities in a radiation of lichen-forming fungi endemic … URL EndNote PDF Read more...
