(2024): Bryophyte, lichen, and vascular plant communities of badland grasslands show weak cross-taxon congruence but high local uniqueness in biancana pediments - Ecological Indicators, 165: 112171 [12 p.]

Cross-taxon congruence, i.e., using certain taxonomic groups as surrogates for others, is receiving growing interest since it may allow decreasing efforts in biodiversity studies. In this work, we investigated the patterns of cross-taxon congruence in species richness and composition between communities of bryophytes, lichens, and vascular plants in different biancana grasslands of a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) of central Italy. We recorded species presence and abundance in 16 plots of 1 × … URL EndNote Read more...

(2024): Materials for the distribution of lichens and lichenicolous fungi in Poland, 4 - Wiadomości Botaniczne, 68: 188210 [25 p.]

The paper presents new localities of 40 species of lichens and 12 species of lichenicolous fungi (marked by an asterisk), which are endangered in Poland or are regionally rare. In addition, the paper includes a new record of the non-lichenized fungus Naevia punctiformis (Ach.) A. Massal. (marked by a plus), which, due to its similarity to the lichenized representatives of the Arthonia Ach. s.l. genus is often included in lichenological publications. The name of each taxon is followed by data on its … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Yang Z., Yuan Y., Guo J., Li J., Li J., Yu H., Zeng W., Huang Y., Yin L. & Li F. (2024): Responses of soil C, N, P and enzyme activities to biological soil crusts in China: A meta-analysis - Plants, 13(11): 1525 [22 p.]

Biological soil crusts (BSCs) are often referred to as the “living skin” of arid regions worldwide. Yet, the combined impact of BSCs on soil carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and enzyme activities remains not fully understood. This study identified, screened and reviewed 71 out of 2856 literature sources to assess the responses of soil C, N, P and enzyme activity to BSCs through a meta-analysis. The results indicated that BSC presence significantly increased soil C, N, P and soil enzyme … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Muriel S., Aragón G., Martínez I. & Prieto M. (2024): Gypsum lichens: a global data set of lichen species from gypsum ecosystems - Ecology, 105(4): e4271 [2 p.]

Lichens are significant components of the biological soil crust communities in gypsum ecosystems and are involved in several processes related to ecosystem functioning, such as water and nutrient cycles or protection against soil erosion. Although numerous studies centered on lichen taxonomy and ecology have been performed in these habitats, global information about lichen species from gypsum substrates or their distributional ranges at a global scale is lacking. Thus, we compiled a global … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Villagra J., Raggio J., Alors D. & Sancho L.G. (2024): Desiccation tolerance of epiphytic macrolichens in an evergreen temperate rain forest (Alerce Costero National Park, Chile) - Plants, 13(11): 1519 [14 p.]

The Valdivian region has a temperate rainy climate with differences in rainfall throughout the year. This heterogeneity results in periods of summer drought that expose the poikilohydric epiphytes to desiccation. With this research, we aim to answer different research questions related to phorophyte preference, response to desiccation, and response to radiation. How does the diversity of macrolichens vary at a local and microclimate scale in three tree species within an evergreen forest? What is … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Puginier C., Libourel C., Otte J., Skaloud P., Haon M., Grisel S., Petersen M., Berrin J.-G., Delaux P.-M., Dal Grande F. & Keller J. (2024): Phylogenomics reveals the evolutionary origins of lichenization in chlorophyte algae - Nature Communications, 15: 4452 [14 p.]

Mutualistic symbioses have contributed to major transitions in the evolution of life. Here, we investigate the evolutionary history and the molecular innovations at the origin of lichens, which are a symbiosis established between fungi and green algae or cyanobacteria. We de novo sequence the genomes or transcriptomes of 12 lichen algal symbiont (LAS) and closely related non-symbiotic algae (NSA) to improve the genomic coverage of Chlorophyte algae. We then perform ancestral state reconstruction … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Sun J., Yu K., Chen N., Munson S.M., Li X. & Jia R. (2024): Biocrusts modulate carbon losses under warming across global drylands: A bayesian meta-analysis - Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 188: 109214

Biocrusts are critical biological components of drylands and play an important role in soil carbon (C) cycling. However, the effect of biocrusts on soil CO2 exchange across global gradients of temperature and moisture is poorly understood. Moreover, their response to climate change remains highly uncertain. Bayesian hierarchical meta-analyses were performed on 47 published studies to quantify the impact of biocrusts on net soil exchange (NSE) of carbon- the difference between respiration and photosynthesis. … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Xu L., Li C.A., Xiong W.J., Kou Y.P., Zou P., Jiao B.J., Yao M.J., Wang J.M., Zhang B.C. & Li X.Z. (2024): The composition of soil fungal communities is more dependent on biocrust type than on shrub cover in the Mu Us Desert - Fungal Ecology, 2024: 70

Desertification-control policies have been applied in the Mu Us Desert since the 1950s. The landscape there is characterized by patches of shrub plants and well-developed lichen and moss crusts, some covered by shrub canopies and some in interspace soils. Little is known about how shrub cover and biocrusts shape soil fungal community structure in this ecosystem. Using high-throughput amplicon sequencing, the effects of biocrust types and shrub cover on soil fungal communities were analyzed. The results … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Meng X., Zhang X., Li Y., Jiao Y., Fan L., Jiang Y., Qu C., Filimonenko E., Jiang Y., Tian X., Shi J. & Kuzyakov Y. (2024): Nitrogen fertilizer builds soil organic carbon under straw return mainly via microbial necromass formation - Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 188: 109223

Carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) inputs strongly influence the formation, turnover and sequestration of soil organic carbon (SOC) in agricultural ecosystems. It is not clear, however, how N input regulates the contribution of plant- and microbial-derived C to SOC sequestration under straw return. To fill this gap, plant and microbial biomarkers, as well as enzyme activities were determined in a long-term (18 years) field experiment. Straw return and N fertilization increased SOC content by 20% and 10%, … URL EndNote PDF Read more...
