Contributions to a history of New Zealand lichenology 5*. James Murray (1923–1961)

  title={Contributions to a history of New Zealand lichenology 5*. James Murray (1923–1961)},
  author={David John Galloway},
James Murray (1923–1961), an organic chemist by profession, was also New Zealand’s first modern lichenologist. Having a wide knowledge of New Zealand plants, and a very competent grasp of post-war natural product chemistry, he was well qualified to take up lichens at a period when chemosystematics was just becoming important in the group. His early published work was to influence the emerging field of lichen bioactive compounds, and 50 years later, generic concepts in the Lobariaceae . Murray’s… Expand
Recent literature on lichens—241
A refined species concept in the tropical lichen genus Polymeridium (Trypetheliaceae) doubles the number of known species, with a worldwide key to the species. Expand
Dismantling the treasured flagship lichen Sticta fuliginosa (Peltigerales) into four species in Western Europe
It is proposed that the taxonomy of all lichen species be urgently reviewed in the light of molecular data in an evolutionary context, particularly those used as bioindicators of environmental change and woodland management. Expand
The Sticta filix morphodeme (Ascomycota: Lobariaceae) in New Zealand with the newly recognized species S. dendroides and S. menziesii: indicators of forest health in a threatened island biota?
Semi-quantitative analysis suggests that species in this guild are good indicators of intact forest ecosystems in New Zealand and that the two newly recognized species, S. dendroides and S. menziesii, appear to perform particularly well in this respect. Expand
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names. Expand
The 2016 classification of lichenized fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota – Approaching one thousand genera
The phylogenetic position of the 39 orders containing lichenized fungi suggests 20–30 independent lichenization events during the evolution of higher Fungi, 14–23 in the Ascomycota and 6–7 in the Basidiomycota. Expand
Emmanuelia, a new genus of lobarioid lichen-forming fungi (Ascomycota: Peltigerales): phylogeny and synopsis of accepted species
The new genus Emmanuelia is introduced, named in honor of Prof. Emmanuël Sérusiaux for his extensive work on the Peltigerales, and forms a monophyletic group sister to the lineage consisting of Dendriscosticta, Lobariella and Yoshimuriella. Expand
Pseudocyphellaria crocata (Ascomycota: Lobariaceae) in the Americas is revealed to be thirteen species, and none of them is P. crocata
A phylogenetic revision of the Pseudocyphellaria crocata complex in the Americas is provided, showing 13 distinct species, forming a monophyletic group divided into four large clades, three comprising one species each and one containing eight species, plus two taxa for which no molecular data are available.

The first record that we can find of the Lichen-flora of this remote island, is contained in a preliminary account of the Antarctic Lichens collected by Dr. J. D. Hooker during the voyage of theExpand
The chemistry of Pseudocyphellaria impressa S. Lat. in New Zealand
As part of a detailed study of the nomenclature and taxonomy of the New Zealand species of Pseudocyphellaria it has been noted that the chemistry of the P. impressa (Hook & Taylor) Vainio aggregate,Expand

A large, new Nectocarcinus is recorded from 10-22 fathoms off Auckland and Campbell Islands and compared with the closely allied N. antarcticus (Jacquinot) here redescribed. The latter occursExpand
Lichenology in Germany: past, present and future
Short biographies of 104 lichenologists who have played a key role in the development of German lichenology are provided. These date from Hoffmann and the early days of lichen classification in theExpand
Part 7: Bryophytes and lichens
It is suggested that the near absence of Sphagnum, Marchantia, and related thallose hepatics from Secretary Island, and the comparative rarity of the mosses Weymoutbia mollis and Thuidium indicates either that the island receives lower rainfall or that lower light intensities prevail on the forest floor than in the Manapouri — Deep Cove area.

Nomenclatural Notes on Pseudocyphellaria in New Zealand
At present 40 species of Pseudocyphellaria are recognised in the New Zealand flora, ten of which appear to be new and will be described elsewhere. In the present account, the 30 published taxa areExpand
