Soil and plant changing after invasion: the case of Acacia dealbata in a Mediterranean ecosystem.
Acacia dealbata Link (Fabaceae) is one of the most invasive species in the Mediterranean ecosystems of Europe, Africa and America, where it has been proved to exert strong effects on soil and plantExpand

Forest plant diversity is threatened by Robinia pseudoacacia (black-locust) invasion
The effects of black-locust invasion on plant forest diversity are still poorly investigated. Vascular plants are likely to be influenced by increasing nutrient availability associated with theExpand

Climate change fosters the decline of epiphytic Lobaria species in Italy
Similarly to other Mediterranean regions, Italy is expected to experience dramatic climatic changes in the coming decades. Do to their poikilohydric nature, lichens are among the most sensitiveExpand

Mature non-native black-locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) forest does not regain the lichen diversity of the natural forest.
The responses of lichens to habitat changes caused by invasive trees are poorly understood. Invasive forest trees may impact epiphytic lichens by altering both substrate and stand conditions.Expand

Biological effects of ammonia released from a composting plant assessed with lichens
In this study, we investigated whether ammonia emissions from industrial composting of organic waste may influence the surrounding environment, using lichens as bioindicators. To this purpose,Expand

Patterns and drivers of β‐diversity and similarity of Lobaria pulmonaria communities in Italian forests
Summary We attempted to elucidate the roles of β-diversity components and similarity in shaping Lobaria pulmonaria lichen communities in Italian forests to provide scientific tools for improvingExpand

Climate change hastens the urgency of conservation for range-restricted plant species in the central-northern Mediterranean region
With the consensus that human activities are leading to dangerous interference in Earth’s climate, there has been growing policy pressure for clear quantification and attribution of the resultingExpand

Background element content in the lichen Pseudevernia furfuracea: a comparative analysis of digestion methods
In bioaccumulation studies, the interpretation of pollutant contents in the target biomonitor has to be performed by assessing a deviation from an unaltered reference condition. A common strategyExpand

Species- and site-specific efficacy of commercial biocides and application solvents against lichens
Abstract Control of lichens on stone cultural heritage is mostly achieved by a combination of mechanical removal with biocide applications. However, there is a lack of scientific evidence on theExpand
