  • Translocation processes between the inner and outer rings of lichen thalli, as well as between lichens and bark substratum, induce zonation patterns, with a dynamic stratification of pollution history memory which is often affected by the intensity of the atmospheric events. Two experiments of passive biomonitoring are presented, aimed to measure metal concentrations and zonation patterns in lichens and bark, before and after raining events or after a water sprinkling treatment. Ten elements… CONTINUE READING
