Bermuda Lichens

The lichens & lichenicolous fungi of the Bermuda Isles

We did it! "Contributions to the lichen flora of Bermuda--Part 1" is now available

We did it! After 7 years of gestation, our major paper, "Contributions to the lichen flora of Bermuda--Part 1" has been published in Evansia.

This paper presents a major addition to the lichen flora of Bermuda: the species reported here than doubles the species previously known from the Bermuda Isles. 

Here is an excerpt from the abstract:

The last account of the lichen flora of Bermuda was published nearly 100 years ago by Riddle (1916) and repeated in Waterston (1947). The spectrum of species from that time was found to be quite accurate though limited in number. The increasing number of species noted here is predominantly a result of taxonomic progress as well as targeted, intensive exploration of poorly known Bermudian ecosystems. 105 species are recorded as new to Bermuda, and two new combinations are made. A key to Caloplaca spp. occurring in Bermuda is provided. The first records of foliicolous lichens of Bermuda are given.
