Epiphytic lichens of Scots pine phytocoenoses in conditions of industrial pollution

Lesnoe Khozyaistvo ( 2): 30-31

Epiphytic lichens of Scots pine phytocoenoses in conditions of industrial pollution

Epiphytic lichens of Pinus sylvestris were studied in stands 30-40 and 75-100 years old at various distances from Dzherzinsk, a major centre of the chemical industry (Nizhegorod region, Russia). Snow samples were also analysed over 3 years to determine local pollution levels, and indicated that industrial pollution extended for 15-20 km from the emission sources, with maximum pollution within 4-5 km.

Basal and cauline synusiae differ in their pattern of succession.
