Factors influencing epiphytic bryophyte and lichen species richness at different spatial scales in managed temperate forests
Forest management oriented to the conservation of epiphytes should focus on the maintenance of tree species diversity in mixed stands and increment the proportion of deciduous trees (mainly oaks) and conserving large trees within the stands; providing the presence of shrub and regeneration layer; creating heterogeneous light conditions.
Epiphytic lichen diversity along elevational gradients: biological traits reveal a complex response to water and energy
In a climate change scenario, lichen diversity in alpine regions will probably not benefit from an increase in air temperature in the same way as flowering plants, and monitoring variations in the proportions of growth form and photobiont type may represent a tool for detecting the effects of climate change on lichen species.
Influence of tree age, tree size and crown structure on lichen communities in mature Alpine spruce forests
Testing the relations between tree parameters and the richness and composition of lichen communities in near-natural stands could be a first step to gather information for forest managers interested
Organic Farming Benefits Local Plant Diversity in Vineyard Farms Located in Intensive Agricultural Landscapes
It was found that the positive effect of organic farming was more pronounced for perennial than annual species, while mechanical operations and mowing regime did not differ between organic and conventional farms.
