Lichen Community Analysis for Environmental Monitoring

Dates

Start Date
2014
End Date
2016

Summary

Lichen communities have been shown to be sensitive to changes in environmental pollution and climate change, making them good candidates for long-term monitoring of ecosystem conditions. Building upon prior efforts, a partnership among the National Park Service (NPS), the US Forest Service, and Oregon State University (OSU) has been formed to integrate existing lichen data across southwest, south-central, and southeast Alaska, and collaboratively develop and refine tools for monitoring climate change and air quality change. This project continues that partnership between NPS and OSU to conduct analyses and modeling of lichen communities for environmental monitoring purposes. Project objectives include developing lichen-climate gradient [...]
