Researchers at University of Tartu target applied ecology
August 15th, 2009
According to a study from Tartu, Estonia, " Green-tree retention (GTR) has been suggested as a means to effectively support epiphytic lichen species in managed forests, given the low lichen mortality on retention trees in the short term. However, a long-term perspective requires a physiological understanding of lichen responses to logging."
"This study compares anatomical, morphological and physiological traits of lichens on retention trees and on intact forest trees. Thalli of nine taxa (Buellia griseovirens, Cladonia digitata, Hypogymnia physodes, Lecanora allophana, Lecanora pulicaris, Lepraria spp., Peltigera praetextata, Pertusaria amara and Phlyctis argena) were...
