Current state of Lobaria pulmonaria in southernmost Sweden.

Schiefelbein, Ulf and Thell, Arne LU (2018) In Graphis Scripta 30(6). p.94-104
Abstract (Swedish)
Sites of Lobaria pulmonaria reported from the nemoral zone of the Swedish provinces Skåne and Blekinge since 1990 were revisited. At each locality, the habitat ecology and lichen viability were investigated. A substantial decline was noted, particularly in Skåne, as L. pulmonaria was found at only 24 sites, 22 of which were forests and two were wooded meadows. The commonest habitats for L. pulmonaria were Tilio-Acerion forests and species-poor, oligotrophic beech forests, and the commonest substrates were trunks of Acer platanoides and Fagus sylvatica, followed by Quercus robur. The inhabited trees grew often in the upper part of steep slopes or rock faces, either on rocky or boulder-rich, meso- to oligotrophic soils. Lobaria pulmonaria... (More)
