Petrova S., Velcheva I. & Nikolov B. (2024): Nature-based solutions to reduce air pollution: A case study from Plovdiv, Bulgaria, using trees, herbs, mosses and lichens - Forests, 15(6): 928 [14 p.]

Nature-based solutions (NBSs) are becoming more and more recognized as useful instruments to address the challenges that urban areas are currently facing, i.e., climate change adaptation, flood mitigation, etc. In the present study, we aimed to: (1) compare the efficiency of mosses, lichens, herbs and trees in removing pollutants from the urban air using their biomonitoring potential; (2) assess their efficiency as nature-based solutions to mitigate urban air pollution; and (3) propose a framework … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Conway S.N., McCune B. & Henkel T.W. (2024): Lichen diversity in serpentine habitats of the North Coast Range, California - Bryologist, 172(2): 220–232

Macrolichen diversity and community composition were determined for an area of high botanical interest in the Coast Ranges of Northern California – the Horse Mountain Botanical Area (HMBA) in Six Rivers National Forest. The Coast Ranges have been suggested to have high lichen diversity, yet detailed site-specific macrolichen surveys are lacking for the area. The HMBA is characterized by the presence of ultramafic (serpentine) soils, contributing to its diverse assemblage of conifers. Here we present … URL EndNote Read more...

[in Spanish with English abstract:] Species of the genera Athallia, Blastenia, Calogaya, Caloplaca, Flavoplaca, Gyalolechia, Kuettlingeria, Pyrenodesmia, Rufoplaca, Sanguineodiscus, Variospora, and Xanthocarpia, of the family Teloschistaceae, formerly all belonging to the genus Caloplaca s.l, of aquatic environments with greater or lesser resistance to immersion, are studied. All of them with scarce presence in papers on this type of habitats. We intend to better know its ecology by studying … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Bjerke J.W., Magnussen K., Bright R.M., Navrud S., Erlandsson R., Finne E.A. & Tømmervik H. (2024): Synergies and trade-offs between provisioning and climate-regulating ecosystem services in reindeer herding ecosystems - Science of the Total Environment, 927: 171914 [13 p.]

Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) pastoralism utilizes vast boreo-arctic taiga and tundra as grazing land. Highly fluctuating population sizes pose major challenges to the economy and livelihood of indigenous herder communities. In this study we investigated the effect of population fluctuations on core provisioning and regulating ecosystem services in two Sámi reindeer herding districts with contrasting fluctuation trends. We compared 50-year long time series on herd size, meat production, forage productivity, … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Taurozzi D., Gallitelli L., Cesarini G., Romano S., Orsini M. & Scalici M. (2024): Passive biomonitoring of airborne microplastics using lichens: A comparison between urban, natural and protected environments - Environment International, 187: 108707 [10 p.]

Currently, natural and urban ecosystems are affected by different types of atmospheric deposition, which can compromise the balance of the environment. Plastic pollution represents one of the major threats for biota, including lichens. Epiphytic lichens have value as bioindicators of environmental pollution, climate change, and anthropic impacts. In this study, we aim to investigate the lichen bioaccumulation of airborne microplastics along an anthropogenic pollution gradient. We sampled lichens … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Temu S.G., Tibell S., Tibuhwa D.D. & Tibell L. (2024): Coniocybe Ach. revisited - Journal of Fungi, 10(5): 363 [12 p.]

Calicioids form a research field that has encompassed ascomycetous fungi with stalked ascomata similar to those of the lichen genus Calicium. Early generic circumscriptions of calicioid lichens and fungi were mainly based on morphological and secondary chemistry information. After the introduction of molecular data, taxonomy in the group has been reconsidered. Here, based on a broad geographical sampling, Coniocybe Ach. was revised using molecular and morphological features. Three loci (ITS, … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Tomović J., Kočović A., Anđić M., Bradić J., Zubić N., Jakovljević V., Sovrlić M., Vasiljević P. & Manojlović N. (2024): Bioactive components analysis and pharmacological properties of extracts and metabolites of lichen Umbilicaria crustulosa - Scientia Pharmaceutica, 92(2): 27 [16 p.]

Lichens, a diverse group of organisms, have a unique structure consisting of fungal filaments and photosynthetic partner cells. This research conducted a comprehensive chemical analysis and evaluation of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of methanolic and acetone extracts from Umbilicaria crustulosa lichen, along with its isolated metabolites. The process involved separating atranorin and chloratranorin fractions, physodic acid, and gyrophoric acid. Secondary metabolites were identified … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Baczewska I., Strzemski M., Feldo M., Hanaka A. & Dresler S. (2024): Green extraction of depsidones and depsides from Hypogymnia physodes (L.) Nyl. using natural deep eutectic solvents - International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 25(10): 5500 [13 p.]

Various studies have shown that Hypogymnia physodes are a source of many biologically active compounds, including lichen acids. These lichen-specific compounds are characterized by antioxidant, antiproliferative, and antimicrobial properties, and they can be used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The main aim of this study was to optimize the composition of natural deep eutectic solvents based on proline or betaine and lactic acid for the extraction of metabolites from H. physodes.
