MAPPING LICHEN DIVERSITY AS AN INDICATOR OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY
In the last decades, several methods were proposed for assessing environmental quality — mainly air pollution — on the basis of lichen data (see chapter 4, this volume). At the end of the 80s the… Expand
PCR PRIMERS FOR THE AMPLIFICATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL SMALL SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL DNA OF LICHEN-FORMING ASCOMYCETES
Four primers for the amplification of mitochondrial DNA of lichenforming ascomycetes are presented. The primers match the conserved regions U2, U4, and U6, respectively, of mitochondrial small… Expand
A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.
Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species. Here we report the results from weighted parsimony, maximum likelihood… Expand
A Revision of European Saxicolous Species of the Genus Buellia de not. and Formerly Included Genera
- C. Scheidegger
- 1 December 1993
: A detailed taxonomic survey of the saxicolous European species of Buellia based on a detailed survey and assessment of the important features of the genus is presented. These include the conidia,… Expand
New insights into classification and evolution of the Lecanoromycetes (Pezizomycotina, Ascomycota) from phylogenetic analyses of three ribosomal RNA- and two protein-coding genes.
The Lecanoromycetes includes most of the lichen-forming fungal species (> 13500) and is therefore one of the most diverse class of all Fungi in terms of phenotypic complexity. We report phylogenetic… Expand
Monitoring with Lichens — Monitoring Lichens
Widespread changes in natural and managed environments in the last century have been associated with rapid development of technology with the capacity for massive destruction of natural environments.… Expand
Genetic variation within and among populations of the threatened lichen Lobaria pulmonaria in Switzerland and implications for its conservation
The foliose epiphytic lichen Lobaria pulmonaria has suffered a significant decline in European lowlands during the last decades and therefore is considered as endangered throughout Europe. An… Expand
Quantifying dispersal and establishment limitation in a population of an epiphytic lichen.
Dispersal is a process critical for the dynamics and persistence of metapopulations, but it is difficult to quantify. It has been suggested that the old-forest lichen Lobaria pulmonaria is limited by… Expand
Fungus-specific microsatellite primers of lichens: application for the assessment of genetic variation on different spatial scales in Lobaria pulmonaria.

- 1 October 2003
We isolated 12 microsatellite loci for the epiphytic lichen-forming ascomycete Lobaria pulmonaria and studied their patterns of variation within and among populations from Canada and Switzerland.… Expand
Conservation strategies for lichens: insights from population biology
Abstract To design effective conservation strategies, the population biology of the target organism needs to be well understood. In lichens, the population dynamics of the symbiotic organism is… Expand
