It was shown that the highest species richness, bryophyte total coverage and values of the diversity indices referred to the latter complex of streets, and epiphytes showed some tendencies to occupy trunks of some host tree species more frequently than others.

Aspen succession and nitrogen loading: a case for epiphytic lichens as bioindicators in the Rocky Mountains, USA
Lichen communities in this landscape assessment of aspen forests showed clear responses to long-term (stand succession) and short- term (nitrogen deposition) influences, while several environmental factors had little influence on these same lichen communities.
Evaluating macrolichens and environmental variables as predictors of the diversity of epiphytic microlichens
It is concluded that in biodiversity assessments with scarce resources, lichen sampling could be focused on the better known macrolichens, at least in many temperate lowland and mountain forests.
The main drivers for the occurrence of six red-listed epiphytic bryophytes and lichens in the boreo-nemoral forest landscape, Latvia
Forest landscape plays a significant role in rare cryptogam distribution. However, data about the environmental demands of rare epiphytic bryophytes and lichens in boreo-nemoral forest landscapes are
Forest and substrate type drive bryophyte distribution in the Alps
The results suggest that in this region ecologically based forest management might focus their efforts in protecting all the forest types and associated substrates, and that forests of less economic value should also be preserved.
An In Situ Method to Measure and Map Bark pH
Bark pH is an essential parameter which partly governs the chemistry of the bark as well as its suitability as a microhabitat to a wide range of epiphytic organisms. Bark pH is known to vary with
Environmental factors that drive the distribution and abundance of a threatened cyanolichen in Southern Europe: a multi-scale approach.
The results suggest that L. scrobiculata thrives mainly in oak forests with highly variable annual precipitation levels, and the importance of tree size and bark roughness as the main drivers of species occurrence and abundance is highlighted.
Molecular diversity of green corticolous microalgae from two sub-Mediterranean European localities
The samples taken from oak trees were more diverse in their OTU composition than those taken from pine trees, but the average phylogenetic distances of OTUs in samples did not differ between the host tree taxa, indicating that habitat filtering is important for the distribution of individual microalgal phylogenetic taxa.
Changes in stand structure due to the cessation of traditional land use in wooded meadows impoverish epiphytic lichen communities
Abstract Wooded meadows with a history of traditional land use over thousands of years support a great diversity of various taxa. Today, however, high-species-rich communities in wooded meadows are
