Epiphytic macrolichens in Estonian forests

Folia Cryptogamica Estonica ( 32): 47-55

Epiphytic macrolichens in Estonian forests

Some 116 random sample plots were studied in Estonian forests to estimate epiphytic macrolichen distribution frequency: 57 lichen species were recorded 1164 times on 2328 trees (14 species, with the most frequent species Pinus sylvestris, found in 71 of the plots). Lichen species were divided into 7 frequency classes. Frequency class 1 (1-15 records) contained most of the species - 42 species belonging to 5 geographical elements.

The big extension occupied by the cork-oak forests in Portugal is matched to their ecologic and chorological diversity. This allows to recognize three different vegetation series. These particularities show a marked differential character to the c...
