  • Multiple interacting factors may explain variation present in symbiotic associations, including fungal specificity, algal availability, mode of transmission and fungal selectivity. To separate these factors, we sampled the lichenized Cladonia subtenuis and associated Asterochloris algae across a broad geographic range. We sampled 87 thalli across 11 sites using sequence data to test for fungal specificity (phylogenetic range of association) and selectivity (frequency of association), fungal… CONTINUE READING
