Bisht K., Upadhyay S., Rawal R.S. & Joshi Y. (2023): Lichen diversity in high elevations of Western Himalaya with special reference to treeline ecotone: conservation and indicator value - In: Singh S.P., Reshi Z.A. & Joshi R. (eds.), Ecology of Himalayan Treeline Ecotone, p. 307–338, Springer, Cham

The tree line ecotone, which lies between subalpine forests and the alpine grasslands, offers special habitats and niches for several unique, representative, and sensitive biodiversity elements. Present study,with a focus on distribution patterns of macrolichens, attempts to describe such elements in high-altitude landscape associated with Tungnath, west Himalayan treeline ecotone. Two representative elevation transects [Kalsir–Chandrashila (KCT), 2080–3677 m asl and Pothibhasha–Chandrashila … URL EndNote Read more...

Wang Y., Wei X., Hu Y. & Xu J.-R. (2024): Umbilicaria muhlenbergii: A model for studying molecular mechanisms regulating initial fungal symbiotic interactions with algal cells - In: Hsueh Y.-P. & Blackwell M. (eds), Fungal Associations, The Mycota 9, p. 181–193, Springer, Cham

Lichens are known for their importance in evolution and ecology but our knowledge of molecular mechanisms regulating symbiont interactions in lichen symbiosis is very lim-ited. Recent studies have shown that Umbilicaria muhlenbergii has a relative fast growth rate and is amenable to molecular genetic studies for efficiently generating transformants and targeted gene disruption mutants. It is the only known dimorphic lichen-forming fungus, and pseudohyphal growth is associated with symbiotic interactions … URL EndNote Read more...

Grube M. (2024): [Chapter 6] Lichens - In: Hsueh Y.-P. & Blackwell M. (eds), Fungal Associations, The Mycota 9, p. 145–178, Springer, Cham

Lichenized fungi initiate their symbiotic structures from microscopic stages after recog-nition of compatible algae. The partnerships ultimately emerge as complex macroscopic phenotypes which are unrivaled in the fungal kingdom by their resilience and durability. This chapter presents an overview of lichen symbioses and covers the morphology and systematics of the fungal phenotypes, as well as their associations with diverse photobionts. This is followed by a coarse overview of eco-physiology and … URL EndNote Read more...

Contardo T. & Loppi S. (2024): Assessing environmental justice at the urban scale: The contribution of lichen biomonitoring for overcoming the dichotomy between proximity-based and distribution-based approaches - Atmosphere, 15(3): 275 [15 p.]

In this study, we tested the use of lichen biomonitoring techniques for the assessment of air quality disparities at the urban scale. We based our evaluation on the results of a previous lichen biomonitoring study carried out in Milan (Northern Italy), which estimates the contamination by potentially toxic elements (PTEs) and its distribution over the area, also providing an evaluation of the main emission sources. Therefore, we used the traditional methodologies for environmental justice assessment: … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Pinna D. (2024): Physical and mechanical methods for the removal of lithobionts—A review - Coatings, 14(3): 272 [21 p.]

This paper describes and discusses the results of scientific experiences of the physical and mechanical methods used to control and inhibit the growth of lichens and biofilms that grow on indoor and outdoor historical stone artworks. It provides an extensive selection and examination of international papers published in the last two decades on the issue. The great advantage of physical and mechanical methods lies in the lack of potential risks associated with the irreversible application of microbicides. … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Köhler L., Tobón C., Frumau K.F.A. & Bruijnzeel L.A.(S.) (2007): Biomass and water storage dynamics of epiphytes in old-growth and secondary montane cloud forest stands in Costa Rica - Plant Ecology, 193: 171–184

Epiphytic biomass, canopy humus and associated canopy water storage capacity are known to vary greatly between old-growth tropical montane cloud forests but for regenerating forests such data are virtually absent. The present study was conducted in an old-growth cloud forest and in a 30-year-old secondary forest (SF) on wind-exposed slopes in the Cordillera de Tilarán (Monteverde area) in northern Costa Rica. Epiphytic vegetation in both forests was dominated by bryophytes. Epiphyte mat weight (epiphyte … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Kubiak D. (2024): Notes on Candelariella reflexa s. str. (Ascomycota, Candelariaceae) in Poland - Acta Mycologica, 58: 183018 [5 p.]

This paper presents new localities of the epiphytic lichen Candelariella reflexa (Nyl.) Lettau found in NE Poland. The species has been reported in Poland for over two decades, but the progress of research on the taxonomy of this genus requires confirmation of the data by the currently accepted taxonomic approach. The paper also discusses the diagnostic features of the species that help distinguish it from other similar taxa. Keywords: lichens; Candelinella; Opeltiella; new localities; NE Poland.

Pérez-Vargas I., Tuero-Septién J., Rancel-Rodríguez N.M., Pérez J.A. & Blázquez M. (2024): Patterns of endemism in lichens: another paradigm-shifting example in the lichen genus Xanthoparmelia from Macaronesia - Journal of Fungi, 10(3): 166 [18 p.]

It has long been assumed that lichen-forming fungi have very large distribution ranges, and that endemic species are rare in this group of organisms. This is likely a consequence of the “everything small is everywhere” paradigm that has been traditionally applied to cryptogams. However, the description of numerous endemic species over the last decades, many of them in oceanic islands, is challenging this view. In this study, we provide another example, Xanthoparmelia ramosae, a species that is … URL EndNote PDF Read more...
