Monographs in North American Lichenology

Published by Northwest Lichenologists

Purpose

NWL has produced a series of reasonably-priced, peer-reviewed, paperback academic books on lichens, with a focus on topics of regional interest, such as generic monographs, annotated state lists, ecological works, local floras, and symposium proceedings. Our purpose is to provide an outlet for very long papers and books of wide interest but that are too long for regular scientific journals. Volumes will be produced sporadically. We expect 0-2 volumes per year. Works on any aspect of lichenology will be considered.





Vol. 4


Haldeman, M. 2020.

Corticolous Crustose Lichens on Forest Inventory Plots in Northern Idaho.

Monographs in North American Lichenology 4: 1-71.


Free pdf download. Let us know if you are interested in buying a print copy. We are checking on the cost and will print some if demand is there.


ISBN: 978-0-9790737-4-8


This richly illustrated monograph provides excellent habitat and substrate preferences for bark-dwelling crustose lichens and lichenicolous fungi in the northern Rocky Mountains of Idaho. Four main sections describe habitats, lichen species, occurrences for each phorophyte species, and lichenicolous fungi. It should prove useful throughout the Pacific Northwest region.

The single most valuable book for people interested in learning the crustose lichen flora west of the Cascade Range has been Willa Noble’s unpublished Ph.D. dissertation. This massive work contains an excellent lichen flora for a portion of British Columbia. But its importance extends well beyond that. It is an indispensable reference work for lichen studies from Alaska to northern California.

This is the first comprehensive summary of the occurrence, literature references, and ecological context for lichens in any state or province in the Pacific Northwest or northern Rocky Mountains. Because we also include reports from adjoining states and provinces, the book should be useful in a broad area. The monograph will be an invaluable reference for people delving into crustose lichens.
So far, a total of 1074 species are documented from Montana. Of these, 283 species are new for the state and 19 are new to North America. We discuss the rare, threatened, and endangered lichens of Montana. Priorities for surveys and monitoring are evaluated by placing species in one of eight categories, based on all combinations of global rarity, ease of detection, and habitat vulnerability.

Why write a book for identifying soil crust lichens? We have three reasons: (1) they are ecologically important, (2) they can be difficult to identify with existing sources, or they are omitted altogether, and (3) they should be more widely recognized for what they are.  More...
