A list is presented of 359 lichen taxa known so far from Chiapas (Mexico). It is based on literature records and recent collections made by Breedlove and by Wolf and collaborators. The actual lichen flora of Chiapas is estimated to be certainly much larger.

    The Atlantic broad-leaved woodlands of Britain are of international renown for their lichen floras. They are inhabited by 517 lichens, representing 28.3% of the total lichen flora and 73.2% of all British woodland lichens, and they are the main habitat for 165 species. Of these, 31 have a marked...

    The effects of two silvicultural herbicides (VisionR, ReleaseR) on bryophytes and lichens were studied in a harvested boreal mixedwood ecosystem. A completely randomized design with 115 plots of 1 m2 allowed direct comparison between herbicides and their effects on community dynamics. Regression...
