Bates, Jeffrey W., Farmer, Andrew M.
This volume presents a synthesis of new information about the responses of bryophytes and lichens to changing environmental conditions, particularly those brought about by human activities. Bryophytes and lichens are often treated independently, but as they commonly exist in association with each other and share similar characteristics, they are here described together. The environmental sensitivity of both types of organisms is truly remarkable. At various times the use of one group or the other has been recommended to indicate the presence of particular mineral deposits (geological prospecting), soil and site conditions (forestry), level of atmosphere and aquatic pollutants (biomonitoring), ages of rock surfaces (lichenometry), and historical continuity of forests cover (bioindication). Topics covered in this book include physiology, distribution, ecological function, and response to pollution and land management of these organisms.Bates, Jeffrey W. is the author of 'Bryophytes and Lichens in a Changing Environment', published 1992 under ISBN 9780198542919 and ISBN 0198542917.
