Epiphytic lichens possess unique life history traits that can have conflicting effects on genetic structure: symbiotic mutualism between a fungus with its algal or cyanobacterial photobiont, association with a host plant, and ability to reproduce sexually and asexually. Our study species, Ramalina menziesii, has small ascospores that can facilitate long-distance gene movement, and it is capable of clonal reproduction. The goals of this study are to test whether different haplotypes were… CONTINUE READING
