Abstract Functional groups of epiphytic lichens are proposed as indicators of air quality in a Mediterranean urban area in the south of Portugal. Local land use: traffic (for areas near roads), green (for park areas) and house (residential areas); and bark pH are applied as proxies of air quality. Epiphytic lichen diversity was evaluated using lichen diversity values (LDV) methodology. Global LDV value decreases on traffic areas, as well as absolute values of LDV for the examined functional… CONTINUE READING
