Functional traits of epiphytic lichens as potential indicators of environmental conditions in forest ecosystems
Abstract Several experimental studies support the effectiveness of lichen diversity as an indicator of environmental change. On the contrary, the potential of functional trait values of epiphyticExpand

Large-scale patterns of epiphytic lichen species richness: photobiont-dependent response to climate and forest structure.
Lichens are composite organisms consisting of a symbiotic association of a fungus with a photosynthetic partner. Although the photobiont type is a key life-history trait, tests of the potentialExpand

Reprint of: Patterns and drivers of species composition of epiphytic bryophytes and lichens in managed temperate forests
Epiphytic bryophytes and lichens are an important component of the endangered forest biota in temperate forests, their diversity and composition patterns being regulated by tree, stand and landscapeExpand

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 interestedExpand

Factors influencing epiphytic bryophyte and lichen species richness at different spatial scales in managed temperate forests
The effect of management related factors on species richness of epiphytic bryophytes and lichens was studied in managed deciduous-coniferous mixed forests in Western-Hungary. At the stand level, theExpand

Evaluating the conservation status of epiphytic lichens of Italy: A red list
Despite the fact that Italy is among the lichenologically best known areas worldwide, a national red list of lichens is still lacking. The aim of this work was to provide a red list of the epiphyticExpand
