Evaluation of the effectiveness of protected areas networks for conserving diversity is a demanding topic in biological conservation. In the last few years, there has been an increasing number of studies on species distribution modelling which can be easily used to test the efficiency of reserve networks. Unfortunately, this effort has been focused on the(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY High-quality information about threatened species is required to prevent current global biodiversity losses. Lichens are important components of forest biodiversity and help to maintain ecosystem functioning. The epiphytic cyanolichen Lobarina scrobiculata is red-listed in Europe and North America, but knowledge of its ecology and(More)
Reasonable lichen growth rates are required to maintain the important ecosystem functions provided by epiphytic lichen populations. Previously, lichen growth has mainly been quantified in boreal forests. Thus, there is a need for comparable studies from Mediterranean forests. We used reciprocal transplantation to compare relative biomass (RGR) and thallus(More)
