Community structure of corticolous microalgae within a single forest stand: evaluating the effects of bark surface pH and tree species
The observed non-random differences in community structure of the biofilms among host tree species indicated possible effects of deterministic processes, such as species sorting of microalgae along the environmental gradients.
Distribution of Lepraria in Latvia in Relation to Tree Substratum and Deciduous Forest Type
Tree species, tree bark crevice depth, inclination, pH and forest type were the most important variables explaining the presence of Lepraria species in dry deciduous forests in Latvia.
Structure and composition of corticolous epiphyte communities in a Sierra Nevada old-growth mixed-conifer forest
To foster epiphyte richness and diversity in this mixed-conifer forest, a heterogeneous mix of mature tree species should be retained when thinning, and mature trees in the narrowly confined riparian zone should not be harvested.
Vertical distribution of epiphytic bryophytes depends on phorophyte type; a case study from windthrows in Kampinoski National Park (Central Poland)
The vertical distribution of epiphytic bryophytes in European forests are still relatively poorly understood. The aim of the study was to analyse the diversity and vertical zonation of epiphytic
Community response to alkaline pollution as an adjusting re‐assembly between alternative stable states
AIMS: We hypothesize that the community response to disturbances can be interpreted as a large‐scale dynamic equilibrium between multiple alternate states stemming from different species pools within
Validations and descriptions of European syntaxa of vegetation dominated by lichens, bryophytes and algae
Fourty-two high-rank syntaxa and seven associations of the thallophyte system of syntaxa are either described as new or validated in this paper. Among those, there are the following nine classes:
Ecology and conservation of bryophytes and lichens on Fagus sylvatica
It was found that the combination of high bark pH, high tree age and damaged stem best explained the number of species of conservation concern.
Epiphytic bryophytes in natural forests and cacao agroforests of Central Sulawesi, Indonesia
The studies in this dissertation underline that epiphytic bryophytes are sensitive to microclimatic changes due to their lack of a protective cuticle and their exposed habitat, which suggests that agroforests do not act as refuge for local epip hyophyte species from natural forests.
Lichens in the rural landscape of the Warmia Plain
The analysed biota consists of 104 taxa with several noteworthy and rareLichens and lichenicolous fungi in the rural landscape of the Warmia Plain were studied.
