A model of reinforcement in a hybrid zone is developed in which an allele causing reinforcement may only be favored in the center of the hybrid zone and is selected against elsewhere. When…
Uholka Primeval Forest in the Ukrainian Carpathians – A Keynote Area for Diversity of Forest Lichens in Europe
Thirty lichenized and ten lichenicolous fungi are new to Ukraine, including Biatora bacidioides and Pertusaria macounii not previously reported from Europe.
VARIATION IN MATING CALL ACROSS THE HYBRID ZONE BETWEEN THE FIRE‐BELLIED TOADS BOMBINA BOMBINA AND B. VARIEGATA
Three components of mating call (pulse duration, cycle length, and fundamental frequency) were measured and six diagnostic enzyme loci scored across the hybrid zone between the toads Bombina bombina…

Thresholds of biodiversity and ecosystem function in a forest ecosystem undergoing dieback
This work tested whether a number of biodiversity, ecosystem functions and ecosystem condition metrics exhibited thresholds in response to a gradient of forest dieback, measured as changes in basal area of living trees relative to areas that lacked recent dieback.
Methods for obtaining more complete species lists in surveys of lichen biodiversity
Overall recorded biodiversity is distinctly higher than the part of lichen biodiversity recorded by each single lichenologist or team, even though it is certain that those forests have greater lichen diversity than the authors' lowland forest.

An investigation of factors affecting the species density and composition of epiphytic lichen communities within the New Forest National Park, southern England found that species density was significantly higher in the old growth woodland plots from those in plantations.
Exploiting hot-spots; effective determination of lichen diversity in a Carpathian virgin forest
Outstanding data is obtained about epiphytic lichen biota in a part of the largest Central European virgin forest reserve Uholka–Shyrokyi Luh situated in Ukrainian Carpathians using a novel methodological approach including a multi-expert competition and a search for local hot-spot plots.
Two new species of Arthoniaceae from old-growth European forests, Arthonia thoriana and Inoderma sorediatum, and a new genus for Schismatomma niveum
Two new species of Arthoniaceae are described from old-growth European forests: Arthonia thoriana from Horner Combe in Great Britain and Inoderma sorediatum from the Białowieża Forest in Poland, supporting the high value of these forests for biodiversity action plans.

The discovery of the new species of Synarthonia leproidica suggests that other strictly sorediate lichen species might have been overlooked in Europe, even in intensely explored countries such as Luxembourg.
