ABSTRACT
The biomass of epiphytic lichens growing on Scots pine varies from 130 to 1090 g and is composed mainly of lichens from three genera: Bryoria (45%), Hypogymnia (34%), and Evernia (12%). The majority of lichens (66%) grow on tree branches (96%) in the zone of maximum development, located at a height of 9-13.5 m. The lichen biomass on tree trunks is insignificant (4%) and located mainly at their bottom part (70%).
