  1. 1. Ecology of lichens in boreal coniferous forests with reference to spatial and temporal patterns

    Author : Per-Anders Esseen; Lars Ericson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lichens; epiphytes; Alectoria; Bryoria; Cladonia; Usnea; Picea abies; Pinus sylvestris; dispersal; litterfall; succession; diversity; spatial patterns;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with the ecology of lichens in two contrasting types of forest, epiphytic lichens in old Picea abies forest of the fi re-refugia type and epigeic as well as epixylic lichens in a successional sequence of fire- susceptible Pinus sylvestris forests. Results in five separate papers form the basis for a discussion of general patterns of dispersal, succession and life strategies in lichens. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hidden complexity of lichen symbiosis : insights into functionality, reproduction and composition

    Author : Veera Tuovinen; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Lichens are tremendously diverse physical outcomes of symbiotic relationships involving fungi, algae and bacteria. This thesis aims to give insight into the functionality, composition and reproduction of lichens from the fungal perspective. READ MORE

    Abstract : Nitrogen (N) deposition has increased globally over the last 150 years and further increase is predicted for the future. Nitrogen is an important nutrient for lichens, involved in many processes in both photobiont and mycobiont.  However, N can be a stressor, causing many lichens and lichen communities to disappear with increased deposition.
