DNA barcoding of lichenized fungi demonstrates high identification success in a floristic context.
• Efforts are currently underway to establish a standard DNA barcode region for fungi; we tested the utility of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA for DNA barcoding inExpand

Phylogenetic insights resolve Dacampiaceae (Pleosporales) as polyphyletic: Didymocyrtis (Pleosporales, Phaeosphaeriaceae) with Phoma-like anamorphs resurrected and segregated from Polycoccum
A phylogenetic analysis of nuLSU and ITS sequences representing genera previously included in Dacampiaceae indicates that the family is strongly polyphyletic and that the type species of Dacampia isExpand

Response of British lichens to climate change scenarios: Trends and uncertainties in the projected impact for contrasting biogeographic groups
Projection of species-response to climate change scenarios is a key tool in conservation strategy. Previous studies have projected climate change impacts for animal and vascular plant species usingExpand

19th century woodland structure controls stand-scale epiphyte diversity in present-day Scotland
Axioms developed from island biogeography theory (i.e. species-area relationships, effects of fragmentation and isolation) are central to the development of conservation strategy. Within thisExpand

Predicted response of the lichen epiphyte lecanora populicola to climate change scenarios in a clean-air region of northern Britain
Studies in the response of vegetation to predicted future climate change have focussed on vascular plants and are therefore largely unrepresentative of wider botanical diversity (i.e. comprisingExpand

New Species of the Lichen Family Thelotremataceae in SE Asia
Abstract The lichen family Thelotremataceae was studied in Thailand and Malaysia (including one specimen from Indonesia). Of the 30 new species recognized, 26 are recorded from Thailand: MyriotremaExpand
