Money N.P., Stolze-Rybczynski J., Smith B.E., Trninić D., Davis D.J. & Fischer M.W.F. (2023): Ascus function: From squirt guns to ooze tubes - Fungal Biology, 127(12): 1491-1504

Unlike the mechanism of ballistospore discharge, which was not solved until the 1980s, the operation of asci as pressurized squirt guns is relatively straightforward and was understood in the nineteenth century. Since then, mycologists have sought to understand how structural adaptations to asci have allowed the ascomycetes to expel spores of different shapes and sizes over distances ranging from a few millimeters to tens of centimeters. These modifications include the use of valves at the tips of … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Ghazanfar S. A. & Gallagher M. (1998): Remarkable lichens from the Sultanate of Oman - Nova Hedwigia, 67(3-4): 519–528

Information of the lichen flora of Oman is as yet fragmentary and incomplete. Of the approximately 230 species so far recorded from the Arabian Peninsula and Socotra, only 36 species are fully identified from the Sultanate of Oman. The majority of the lichens are distributed in three ecogeographical regions. These are: (1) the higher altitudes of the northern mountains, (2) the fog-affected eastern region of central Oman and the eastern islands, and (3) the fog-affected escarpment woodlands of southern … EndNote PDF Read more...

Castello M. (2003): Lichens of the Terra Nova bay area, Northern Victoria Land - Studia Geobotanica, 22: 3–54

57 lichen species are reported from the Terra Nova Bay area (Northern Victoria Land, continental Antarctica), on the basis of collections from the Italian Antarctic Expeditions 1987-1996. 51 of them were identified to species level. A key for their identification is provided. Morpho-anatomical descriptions and nomenclatural, taxonomic and phytogeographical remarks are given for each taxon. Blastenia viridans Js. Murray is reduced to synonymy with Caloplaca athallina Darb. EndNote PDF Read more...

Grube M., Lindblom L. & Mayrhofer H. (2001): Contributions to the lichen flora of Crete: a compilation of references and some new records - Studia Geobotanica, 20: 41–59

An updated checklist of lichens of Crete is presented. A total of 440 taxa is reported. The checklist distinguishes 4 administrative subdivisions (prefectures) in Crete. Strong degradation of the vegetation throughout the island limits the abundance of corticolous lichens, only the woody patches in the Western part contain a number of otherwise rare oceanic species.

Nimis P.L., Skert N. & Castello M. (1999): Biomonitoraggio di metalli in traccia tramite licheni in aree a rischio del Friuli-Venezia Giulia - Studia Geobotanica, 18: 3–49

[in Italian with English abstract: ] BIOMONITORING OF TRACE METALS BY LICHENS IN HIGH-RISK AREAS OF FRIULI-VENEZIA GIULIA (NE ITALY). This study is based on the concentrations of 16 metals in peripheral parts of the thalli of the lichen Xanthoria parietina, collected on trees satisfying standard conditions in 155 stations located in the lowlands of Friuli-Venezia Giulia (NE ltaly), previously selected as potential high-risk areas by Regional Authorities. The interpretation of metal concentrations … EndNote PDF Read more...

Loppi S., Pirintsos S.A., Olivieri N. & Pacioni G. (1999): Distribution of epiphytic lichens on Quercus pubescens along an altitudinal gradient on the Adriatic side of Central Italy - Studia Geobotanica, 17: 85–90

The distribution of epiphytic lichens on Quercus pubescens on the Adriatic side of Central Italy (Abruzzo) was studied along an altitudinal gradient from O to 1000 m by multivariate techniques. The general response of epiphytic lichens to elevation was similar to that found on the Tyrrhenian side of Italy, with great differences in community structure and the altitude of 500 m as an ecotone. However, suboceanic species, which are widespread on the Tyrrhenian side, were rare and confined to higher … EndNote PDF Read more...

Fos S. & Barreno E. (1998): Caracterización ecológica de los alcornocales Iberolevantinos (Este de España) basada en bioindicadores liquénicos - Studia Geobotanica, 16: 71–83

[in Spanish with Enlish abstract: ] This study compares the epiphytic lichen floras of cork-oak forests from eastern Spain. The methodology was designed in such a way as to avoid subjectivity at all stages, from the sampling protocol to data analysis. Field work was carried out in 15 Catalonian localities, in mature stands of Carici-Querco suberis sigmetum, and in 9 localities of the Valencian Cornmunity, in mature stands of Asplenio-Querco suberis sigmetum. In each locality, ten trees were selected, … EndNote PDF Read more...

Litterski B. & Mayrhofer H. (1998): Catalogue of lichenized and lichenicolous fungi of Cyprus - Studia Geobotanica, 16: 57–70

This annotated checklist of lichens and lichenicolous fungi of Cyprus is based mainly on literature records. The currently known lichen flora is composed of 365 taxa (352 species of lichenized fungi, 2 subspecies, 3 varieties and 8 lichenicolous fungi). The Troodos Region, with about 230 taxa, is the part of the island with the highest number of known species. For each lichen species references, regions, substratum and altitudinal range are reported. Keywords: altitudinal zones, biodiversity, checklist, … EndNote PDF Read more...

Badin G. & Nimis P.L. (1996): Biodiversity of epiphytic lichens and air quality in the province of Gorizia - Studia Geobotanica, 15: 73–89

In the last six years the North-East Italian plains were intensively studied for air pollution monitoring with lichen biodiversity measures. To date, more than 3,500 relevés of epiphytic lichen vegetation, based on a standard methodology, were carried out in this area. The present study fills a gap in the exploration of the area, presenting the results relative 10 the province of Gorizia. The study is based on 335 relevés in 104 stations. The relevés are frequency counts of all lichen species … EndNote PDF Read more...
