Lichens are characterized by a great variety of secondary metabolites. The function of these substances remains partly unknown. In this study, we propose that some of these metabolites may expel insect herbivores. To test this hypothesis, we reared larvae of the lichenivorous moth Cleorodes lichenaria on three selected lichens, Cladonia arbuscula subsp.(More)
Lichen secondary metabolites can function as allelochemicals and affect the development and growth of neighboring bryophytes, fungi, vascular plants, microorganisms, and even other lichens. Lichen overgrowth on bryophytes is frequently observed in nature even though mosses grow faster than lichens, but there is still little information on the interactions(More)
