Lichens of Antarctica and South Georgia: A Guide to their Identification and Ecology
Environment and lichen ecology of Antarctica and South Georgia and ecological accounts of the genera and species are summarized and described. Expand
Phylogenetic and morphological analysis of Antarctic lichen-forming Usnea species in the group Neuropogon
Phylogenetic analyses indicated that species circumscription in the Neuropogon group needs revision, with the principal species being non-monophyletic, and none of the morphological characters, or groups of characters, used in this study proved to be completely unambiguous markers for a single species.

The lichen flora of Svalbard
The lichen flora of Svalbard 742 species, including 151 reported for the first time, are treated from Svalbard (exclusive of Bjørnøya). New to science are: Bryocaulon hyperborea Øvstedal (also knownExpand
Characteristic Anthocyanin Pattern from Onions and other Allium spp
Three red onion (Allium cepa) cultivars, top onion (A. cepa var. vivi-parum), A. altaicum and chive (A. schoenoprasum) contained several or all of the following anthocyanins:Expand
One hundred new species of lichenized fungi : a signature of undiscovered global diversity
A total of 100 new species of lichenized fungi are described, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range, and emphasizing the dire need for taxonomic expertise in lichenology. Expand
Additions and corrections to the Lichens of Antarctica and South Georgia
The taxonomic listing given in Lichens of Antarctica and South Georgia (Ovstedal & Lewis Smith 2001) has been updated. 17 additional taxa of lichenised fungi are described, including severalExpand
Anthocyanins from a Norwegian potato cultivar
Abstract The main anthocyanins of purple sprouts of a Norwegian potato cultivar, Solanum tuberosum L., were isolated from a purified methanolic extract by preparative HPLC. Their structures wereExpand
Differentiation in floral scent chemistry among populations of Conopodium majus (Apiaceae)
It was concluded that despite its sexually “promiscuous” flowers, C. majus shows differentiation in scent chemistry that might reflect an ecotypic response to local faunae of pollinators of major importance. Expand
Lichens from the Utsteinen Nunatak (Sør Rondane Mountains, Antarctica), with the description of one new species and the establishment of permanent plots
A detailed survey of the different lichen species was performed at the Utsteinen Nunatak in 2007 in order to establish baseline environmental conditions for the installation of the new Belgian Antarctic research station. Expand
