A Lichen Checklist for Prince Edward Island, Canada

  title={A Lichen Checklist for Prince Edward Island, Canada},
  author={Richard Troy McMullin and Stephen R. Clayden and Steven B. Selva and Rosemary Curley and Lyndsay J. Schram},
Abstract. The lichens and allied fungi of Prince Edward Island have been poorly studied compared to those of other Canadian provinces. To address this knowledge gap, we made collections between 1993 and 2010 in a range of ecosystems and localities across the island. We also compiled and reviewed other collections from public and personal herbaria, as well as published reports. Based on all known records, we present the first lichen checklist for Prince Edward Island; it includes 256 species in… 

The Lichens of Prince Edward Island, Canada: A Second Checklist, with Species Ranked for Conservation Status

In this study, 19 biologically diverse forest remnants and other potentially rich localities were explored for their lichen vegetation, and 118 new county records and 71 species new for the province were discovered.

Noteworthy Range Extensions of Two Lichens in Eastern Canada: Erioderma pedicellatum (Pannariaceae) New to Québec and Parmelia fraudans (Parmeliaceae) New to Nova Scotia

Abstract. The globally rare epiphyte Erioderma pedicellatum is reported for the first time from Québec and the saxicolous Parmelia fraudans, uncommon in eastern North America, is reported for the

Edge effects on the lichen genus Lobaria in Atlantic Canadian Forests

To better understand this ‘edge effect’ in the Acadian Forest, 20 mature deciduous stands in northeastern New Brunswick were examined that were adjacent to clear-cuts ranging from 6–11 years old and used lichens as bioindicators and selected the genus Lobaria because it is particularly sensitive to disturbance, but also common in maturedeciduous forests of this region.

Pilot study of air quality index assessment of nitrogen pollutant using lichen as bioindicators in Jakarta and Depok, Indonesia

Indonesia needs an alternative air quality index considering that the ones currently in use were not precisely made for the environment and people’s genetic makeup in Indonesia. This study aims to



An Analysis of the Historical Records for the Native Mammalian Fauna of Prince Edward Island

A search was carried out for historical records, both published and unpublished, that make reference to the native mammalian fauna of Prince Edward Island. Based on documents dating from 1721 to

The Macrolichens of New England

Examining material in the field, from their own collections, and from other herbaria, James and Patricia Hinds verified 425 species of the lichenized fungi that occur in New England, and accepted an additional 36 species from publications or from correspondence with other lichenologists.

Lichens of Coniferous Old-Growth Forests of Southwestern Nova Scotia, Canada: Diversity and Present Status

Abstract The relationship between lichen species richness and forest age was explored in southwestern Nova Scotia by examining the epiphytic lichens in 51 conifer-dominated forest stands with no

Edge Effects on an Epiphytic Lichen in Fragmented Forests

Increased amount of edge habitat is one of several important consequences of forest fragmentation. Consequently, we must understand the responses of plants and animals to edges to formulate adequate

A Mapping of the Present and Past Forest-types of Prince Edward Island

Our aim was to produce maps showing the distribution on Prince Edward Island of five forest-types previously identified from a TWINSPAN analysis of ground flora data collected at 1200 sampling points

I. Responses to microclimate along a forest edge-interior gradient

The data indicate that the gradient in microclimate was too small to significantly affect lichen growth, and that lichens are largely metabolically inactive when large edge-interior contrasts in micro climate occur.

Effects of Habitat Fragmentation on Biodiversity

■ Abstract The literature on effects of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity is huge. It is also very diverse, with different authors measuring fragmentation in different ways and, as a consequence,
