Abstract Photobiont diversity within populations of Xanthoria parietina was studied at the species level by means of ITS analyses and at the subspecific level with fingerprinting techniques (RAPD-PCR) applied to sterile cultured algal isolates. Populations from coastal, rural and urban sites from NW, SW and central France and from NE Switzerland were investigated. Between 8 and 63 samples per population, altogether 150 isolates, were subjected to phenetic and ordination analyses. Epiphytic… Expand
Green-algal photobiont diversity (Trebouxia spp.) in representatives of Teloschistaceae (Lecanoromycetes, lichen-forming ascomycetes)
TLDR
Only weak correlations between distribution patterns of algal genotypes and environmental conditions or geographical location were observed, although some subclades had low bootstrap support. Expand
Ecological specialization in Trebouxia (Trebouxiophyceae) photobionts of Ramalina menziesii (Ramalinaceae) across six range-covering ecoregions of western North America.
TLDR
Geography, climate, and ecological specialization shape genetic differentiation of lichen photobiont strains of Ramalina menziesii. Expand
Photobiont selectivity leads to ecological tolerance and evolutionary divergence in a polymorphic complex of lichenized fungi.
TLDR
Low selectivity apparently allows widespread lichen-forming fungi to establish successful symbioses with locally adapted photobionts in a broader range of habitats, and might correlate with both lower phylogenetic resolution and evolutionary divergence in species complexes of crustose lichens.

TLDR
The comparative analysis demonstrated that the ITS method provides more clear data and is more successful in genetic diversity analyses of more asunder populations, in contrast to ISSR-PCR and RAPD- PCR methods. Expand
Complete life cycle of the lichen fungus Calopadia puiggarii (Pilocarpaceae, Ascomycetes) documented in situ: propagule dispersal, establishment of symbiosis, thallus development, and formation of sexual and asexual reproductive structures.
TLDR
Abundant dispersal of ascospores, conidia, and photobionts allows C. puiggarii to quickly colonize leaves with the dual advantages of sexual and asexual reproduction, and with the added convenience of having its algal partner on hand. Expand
Comparing Sanger sequencing and high-throughput metabarcoding for inferring photobiont diversity in lichens
TLDR
Compared HTS and Sanger methods for estimating the diversity of green algal symbionts within lichen thalli using 240 lichen individuals belonging to two species of lichen-forming fungi, it is concluded that Sanger sequencing is a valid approach to detect the dominant photobionts in Lichen individuals and populations. Expand
Fungal specificity and selectivity for algae play a major role in determining lichen partnerships across diverse ecogeographic regions in the lichen‐forming family Parmeliaceae (Ascomycota)
TLDR
It is concluded that fungal specificity and selectivity for algal partners play a major role in determining lichen partnerships, potentially superseding ecology, at least at the ecogeographic scale investigated here. Expand
High-Throughput Sequencing in Studies of Lichen Population Biology
TLDR
The utility of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and how various high-throughput sequencing techniques that allow SNP genotyping can contribute to population studies in lichens are discussed, highlighting their respective advantages and limitations for specific types of research questions. Expand
Recent Advances in Lichenology
The population genetics of lichen fungi and their photobionts have been studied for several decades. In this review, we first focus on basic questions in lichen population genetics and on recent andExpand

TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic approach to assess the phytochemical properties of E.coliomycespora marinaifera, a fruit of the Black-winged Pratincole Formation, which has an important role in the establishment of infectious disease. Expand

Population genetics in the homothallic lichen-forming ascomycete Xanthoria parietina
TLDR
Intense genotype rather than gene (allele) flow seems to be an important element in X. parietina populations, as high diversity of genotypes was observed, even among thalli growing side by side in phenotypically homogenous populations. Expand
Morphological and phylogenetic study of algal partners associated with the lichen-forming fungus Tephromela atra from the Mediterranean region
TLDR
The phylogeny of these algae with a multilocus dataset including three loci: ITS, rbcL, and actin type I gene shows the preferential presence in Mediterranean climates of these strains suggests eco-physiological adaptation and the ultrastructural characters currently used to describe species in the genus do not support the segregation of Trebouxia sp.1 from TreBouxia arboricola.

High photobiont diversity associated with the euryoecious lichen‐forming ascomycete Lecanora rupicola (Lecanoraceae, Ascomycota)
The diversity and phylogenetic position of photobionts in the widespread saxicolous, crustose lichen-forming asco- mycete Lecanora rupicola s.l. is presented. The algal partners of this lichenExpand
Genetic combinations of symbionts in a vegetatively reproducing lichen, Parmotrema tinctorum, based on ITS rDNA sequences
TLDR
The genetic diversity of photobionts was poor in the urban area, but rich in suburbs and mountainsides, which might be caused by a bottleneck or founder effect in the population recovering from former damage by heavy air pollution, or variable selectivity of P. tinctorum depending on the environments. Expand
The lichen-forming ascomycete Evernia mesomorpha associates with multiple genotypes of Trebouxia jamesii.
TLDR
Low fungal specificity for multiple algal genotypes and a hypothesized algal switch may be important life history strategies for E. mesomorpha to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Expand
Genotypic analysis of the foliose lichen Parmotrema tinctorum using microsatellite markers: association of mycobiont and photobiont, and their reproductive modes
TLDR
The overall index of association (IA) for the mycobiont in the stand probably indicates the dominance of sexual reproduction, in contrast to that of the photobionT, where dominance of asexual reproduction is suggested. Expand
Identification of Photobionts from the lichen family Physciaceae using algal-specific ITS rDNA sequencing
TLDR
A diversity within the genus Trebouxia Puymaly and Physciaceae photobionts that is higher than expected on the basis morphology alone is indicated and seems to be rather selective and contained photobIONts that were very closely related within one morphospecies of TreBouxia. Expand
Genetic diversity in Xanthoria parietina (L.) Th. Fr. (lichen-forming ascomycete) from worldwide locations
TLDR
Samples from Australia and New Zealand clustered with the second group except one additional, phenotypically distinct specimen, not belonging to X. parietina, which formed an outgroup, however, comparative DNA sequence analyses are required to verify this interpretation. Expand

Molecular sequence data of the nuclear ITS region was used to investigate the diversity of photobionts in Polish samples of Flavocetraria nivalis and found a single clade of T. simplex was detected which also occurs in Polish mountains, south Sweden and Austria. Expand
