Old trees as a key source of epiphytic lichen persistence and spatial distribution in mountain Norway spruce forests

Abstract

Habitat loss and fragmentation can negatively impact the persistence of dispersal-limited lichen species with narrow niches. Rapid change in microclimate due to canopy dieback exposes species to additional stressors that may limit their capacity to survive and colonize. We studied the importance of old trees as micro-refuges and microclimate stability in… (More)
