• The lichen Lobaria pulmonaria survives large seasonal environmental changes through physiological acclimation to ambient conditions. • We quantitated algal cell population, cell division and key macromolecular levels associated with photosynthesis and nitrogen metabolism in L. pulmonaria sampled from four seasons with contrasting environmental conditions in a deciduous forest. • The algal symbiont population did not vary seasonally and cell division was restricted to the newest thallus… CONTINUE READING
