The macro lichen flora from the mangroves of moreton bay queensland australia


Proceedings of the Royal Society of Queensland (90): 33-50
The macro lichen flora from the mangroves of moreton bay queensland australia
The mangrove communities of Moreton Bay have a macrolichen flora (fruticose and foliose lichens) of at least 59 spp. representing 20 genera: Bulbothrix, Coccocarpia, Collema, Dirinaria, Heterodermia, Hypotrachyna, Leptogium, Pannaria, Parmelia, Parmelina, Parmotrema, Physcia, Physciopsis, Physma, Pseudoparmelia, Pyxine, Ramalina, Relicina, Teloschistes and Usnea. All species are corticolous. Seven species [Aegiceras corniculatum, Avicennia marina, Ceriops tagal, Rhizophora stylosa, Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, Excoecaria agrallocha and Lumnitzera racemosa] of mangrove grow around Moreton Bay and the position which each species occupies within the plant community forms a rather indistinct zonation pattern, which could be a factor contributing to the prevalence of lichens on some mangroves and their scarcity on others. Most of the mangrove lichens are found in the Brisbane area and surrounding mountains; some appear to be exclusively maritime. A brief description of each species is given and a key to the taxa is included.
