Taer E.C., Dal Forno M., Aptroot A., Moncada B., Amoroso V.B. & Coritico F.P. (2024): New records of pyrenocarpous lichens from the Philippines - Folia Cryptogamica Estonica, 61: 39–44

Pyrenocarpous lichens are an important component of the forest ecosystem, yet remain understudied. Following the recent field surveys of the lichen biota in Mt. Musuan, four pyrenolichen species previously unreported from the Philippines were collected, namely: Porina exocha, Pyrenula pyrenuloides, P. subsoluta, and Nigrovothelium inspersotropicum. Each species is briefly described with morphology and chemistry, distribution, ecology, notes, and illustrations. These collections underscore the need … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Lorenz C., Arena C., Vitale E., Bianchi E., Poggiali G., Alemanno G., Benesperi R., Brucato J.R., Garland S., Helbert J., Loppi S., Lorek A., Maturilli A., Papini A., de Vera J.-P. & Baqué M. (2024): Resilience of Xanthoria parietina under Mars‑like conditions: photosynthesis and oxidative stress response - Planta, 259: 25 [8 p.]

Xanthoria parietina (L.) Th. Fr. is a widespread lichen showing tolerance against air pollutants and UV-radiation. It has been tested under space-like and Mars-like conditions resulting in high recovery performances. Hereby, we aim to assess the mechanisms at the basis of the thalli resilience against multiple space stress factors. Living thalli of X. parietina were exposed to simulated Martian atmospheric conditions (Dark Mars) and UV radiation (Full Mars). Then, we monitored as vitality indicator … URL EndNote Read more...

Kumari K., Kumar V., Nayaka S., Saxena G. & Sanyal I. (2024): Physiological alterations and heavy metal accumulation in the transplanted lichen Pyxine cocoes (Sw.) Nyl. in Lucknow city, Uttar Pradesh - Environmental Monitoring and Assessment, 196: 84 [16 p.]

Air pollution has become a major concern due to its detrimental effects on living beings. The present study is aimed at assessing the current status of air pollution in Lucknow city using lichen transplantation technique and assesing its effect on physiology of Pyxine cocoes. The samples of P. cocoes were collected from relatively pollution-free area Malihabad and transplanted in 10 designated sites in five regions for 30 days. Various parameters such as heavy metals, chlorophyll pigments, carotenoid, … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Qu M., Duan W. & Chen L. (2024): The role of cryptogams in soil property regulation and vascular plant regeneration: A review - Applied Sciences, 14(1): 2 [15 p.]

Despite their small size, cryptogams (lichen, liverwort, and moss) are important for ecosystem stability. Due to their strong stress resistance, cryptogams often cover extreme environments uninhabitable for vascular plants, which has an important impact on the material cycle and energy flow of various terrestrial ecosystems. In this article, we review and discuss the effects of cryptogams on soil properties (moisture and fertility) and vascular plant regeneration over the past two decades. Cryptogams … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Herring B. (2024): Status survey of the federally endangered Perforate Reindeer Lichen (Cladonia perforata) throughout its known range in Florida - Castanea, 88(2): 241–279

A range wide status survey of the perforate reindeer lichen (Cladonia perforata) was performed by revisiting known extant and historical sites and searching for new populations. Size of each popula- tion was determined and the extent of invasive plant species in the vicinity of Cladonia perforata was also documented. The data was used to update the global and state NatureServe conservation status rank of this species and provide the current information to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service … URL EndNote Read more...

Nirhamo A., Hämäläinen A., Hämäläinen K. & Kouki J. (2024): The response of epiphytic lichens on living and dead Pinus sylvestris to prescribed fires of varying severity - Forest Ecology and Management, 551: 121558 [9 p.]

Prescribed burning can be used to restore forest ecosystems degraded by anthropogenic pressures. However, some species such as epiphytic lichens may be vulnerable to fire. We studied the effects of fire on epiphytic lichens on living and dead Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) by surveying lichens up to two meters on the trunks 21 years after experimental and replicated prescribed burnings in pine-dominated boreal forests in Finland. We investigated three types of stands that had faced different levels … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Zhang W., Ran Q., Li H. & Lou H. (2024): Endolichenic fungi: a promising medicinal microbial resource to discover bioactive natural molecules—an update - Journal of Fungi, 10(2): 99 [49 p.]

Lichens are some of the most unique fungi and are naturally encountered as symbiotic biological organisms that usually consist of fungal partners (mycobionts) and photosynthetic organisms (green algae and cyanobacteria). Due to their distinctive growth environments, including hot deserts, rocky coasts, Arctic tundra, toxic slag piles, etc., they produce a variety of biologically meaningful and structurally novel secondary metabolites to resist external environmental stresses. The endofungi that live … 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...

This study investigated the poorly known phenomenon of Centimetric circular areas Uncolonized by Microbial Biofilms (CUMBs) which is frequently observed on natural and heritage stone surfaces displaying widespread lithobiontic colonization. In order to unveil a possible relationship with past lichen colonization, analyses were carried out on the distribution, morphometry, physical and mineralogical properties, and microscopic features of CUMBs on the marble surfaces of a balustrade in the Garden … URL EndNote Read more...

Sancho L.G., Aramburu A., Etayo J. & Beltrán-Sanz N. (2024): Floristic similarities between the lichen flora of both sides of the Drake Passage: A biogeographical approach - Journal of Fungi, 10(1): 9 [14 p.]

This paper analyses the lichen flora of Navarino Island (Tierra del Fuego, Cape Horn Region, Chile), identifying species shared with the South Shetland Islands (Antarctic Peninsula). In this common flora, species are grouped by their biogeographic origin (Antarctic–subantarctic endemic, austral, bipolar, and cosmopolitan), their habitat on Navarino Island (coastal, forest, and alpine), their morphotype (crustaceous, foliaceous, fruticulose, and cladonioid), and the substrate from which they were … URL EndNote Read more...
