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)
There is ample evidence for species distributional changes in response to recent climate change, but most studies are biased toward better known taxa. Thus, an integrated approach is needed that includes the “cryptic diversity” represented partly by lichens, which are among the most sensitive organisms to environmental change due to their physiological(More)
The main factors determining the occurrence, abundance, growth and reproductive capacity of threatened lichens need to be known in order to implement conservation initiatives. The main objective of the present study was to evaluate which factors affect the conservation status of Degelia species-complex in central Spain. We undertook a non-parametric(More)
